Ride-sharing services often face a debacle that they find difficulty in resolving. They are unsure to provide benefits to their riders or their drivers. In most cases, riders outnumber the drivers and thus are preferred, meaning the drivers have to be on the receiving end of policies that many have called unfair.
However, this is changed by Ariv. Founded by Darcel Lockard and Douglas Loupez, Ariv is a subscription based ride sharing company that aims to alleviate many of the issues faced by drivers, while also providing the riders with significant benefits. Ariv aims to change the ridingsharing industry, and transform it into something similar to a subscription-based service.
Instead of having any shares or commissions in the earnings of their riders, they instead have a monthly or weekly subscription fee. This way the drivers always know how much they need to pay at the end of their subscription period, giving them the ability to make massive profits if they truly put in the effort.
Ariv also takes away any surge prices which fluctuate during certain times of the day. This is to the benefit of both the riders and the drivers, as they will have a more streamlined and consistent experience with their rides now, knowing the exact price of each beforehand.
The app is currently available in the beta stage, available for iOS, but soon will be available for Android phones too, and thus it is the ideal time to try it out. They currently operate within Washington, DC.
The vehicles allowed are Sedan, SUV Models 2009 and up among others. A full list as well as the subscription pricing can be found on their website. Their website is also a good avenue to discuss any queries or issues with their staff.
