I m not proud of my lack of political involvement, I guess I ve always told myself that given the current state of politics, a single vote wouldn t make a difference.

For most Americans, every dollar counts.

Uber has managed the background check process themselves, typically via a third-party, and it only takes a couple of days for a driver to be approved.

For startups aimed at disrupting existing incumbents in industries that are heavily regulated, the negative impact on fundraising will be even greater.

Unregulated Transportation Options are Filling the Vacuum Left By Uber and Lyft.

I m sure that someone could put together a ridesharing platform that works in a limited function, but I doubt it will offer enough trips to make it worth a driver s time, affordable rides or the many accountability and safety measures provided by Uber and Lyft.
