In recent years, the transportation industry has undergone a major facelift. For decades and decades, taxis and/or public transit were the only option for those who needed a ride and had no cars. Because they were the only show in town, taxis often charged a large amount to use their services.
However, recently, options like Uber and Lyft have completely changed the market by introducing ride sharing options for a much more affordable price. Both are worth billions of dollars and serve millions of people all over the world.
But even this ride sharing market isn’t perfect and has some issues, and there are already brand new innovations taking place in the space, such as Drivr. This article will talk about what Drivr is, how it works and so much more.
What is Drivr?
Drivr is a blockchain-based, advanced A.I driven ride sharing platform. It is one of the first ride sharing solutions to use the blockchain and A.I to improve its functionality. They are redefining the space and their framework is designed to be intelligent thanks to machine learning. The network will also feature an integrated wallet, and the entire platform is also available for autonomous cars.
So now that you know a little about the Drivr Network and how they are set up to be the future, let’s look at why it is a better solution than traditional ride sharing services.
Why is Drivr the Better Solution?
When it comes to traditional ride sharing services, you are only able to pay with fiat currency. While Drivr takes standard fiat currency also, they also take their own unique coins and tokens. In addition to that, Drivr lets the people who drive for them be in control of how much they make. They will be able to set their own rates, will be able to receive payment instantly and more. Also, Drivr takes a smaller percentage from drivers than other services, so drivers get a higher share.
Drivr is also planning to implement a Drivr Card, that will utilize fiat currency, Bitcoin as well as their own DRIVR token. Card holders will get points for a loyalty program that can go towards free rides and other purchases as well.
More Ways to Make Money
Let’s face it, people use ride services for one of two ways. They either use it to make money or to pay for rides. While it is, of course, very important to cater to the needs of the passengers and ensure they use your service, you also need to accommodate for those who use your service as a way to make money.
In typical ridesharing apps, the only way to make money is to drive. However, that is not the case with Drivr. Drivr will have what are called City Managers that will be stationed in every zone that Drivr operates. These people will work with drivers and customers alike to make sure their needs are being met and their questions are being answered, with no confusion. This communication will encourage more people to drive for and use Drivr over their competitors.
Better Safety and Security
Of course, when you are essentially getting a ride from (or driving) a stranger, safety and security are incredibly important. As is expected, a heavy background check is performed on everyone who wants to drive, and there is an innovative screening process used, as well. They also include a panic button for both drivers and passengers on the app in case anything unfortunate takes place. This panic button will send alerts to the police and/or family members. The information sent includes driver info, passenger info as well as the GPS location. There is also real-time tracking for drivers and passengers and the ability for passengers and drivers to notify a few select contacts of the progress of their journey, to ensure everyone knows you are safe and sound.
In addition to all of these benefits, there are a variety of other implemented and planned features for Drivr that are sure to help it make a name for itself in the multi-billion dollar industry of ride-sharing services.

The Goals and Vision of Drivr
Now that you know why Drivr is the better option and what they bring to the table, why are they doing it? Well, the team at Drivr is essentially trying to disrupt the disrupters, in a sense. Uber, Lyft and other “ride sharing clones”, as they call them, disrupted the taxi industry, and Drivr is trying to give them a taste of their own medicine. They also want to be one of the first blockchains ready for mass adoption.
Their vision is to cut the cost of ride-sharing and send the savings to the drivers and customers alike. They also plan to innovate the market thanks to the development of autonomous self-driving technology.
The Team at Drivr
The team at Drivr is led by founder David Lander and co-founder James Kaminski. Lander has over 10 years of experience in business management, systems development, implementing technology and more. Kaminski specializes in production and technology assistance and is an expert in A.I research and development. Together, they form an impressive and experienced leadership duo. The rest of the team consists of people with experience in areas like engineering, marketing, development and more. Their entire team can be viewed on the Drivr website, if you want to meet everyone.
In conclusion, Drivr seems like it has what it takes to be the future of the ride-sharing, thanks to its impressive use of some of the hottest technologies like blockchain, A.I and machine learning. Add in their impressive features and their commitment to making the platform and revenue fair for everyone, and Drive could be a huge success. Of course, it is still in its infancy and has a long way to go, but it is definitely a network and service to keep your eyes on going forward.
