Show Notes

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Over the past decade, Transportation Network Companies (TNCs) like Uber and Lyft have shifted the role of ridesharing from cool to necessity within the modern movement economy. However, as TNCs start to expand their services - through e-scooters, e-bikes, and even public transit connectivity - dynamics within their user base, driver pool, and overarching business models are, in turn, affected. In this episode, host Dennis Wisco speaks with ridesharing expert and entrepreneur Harry Campbell, and CoMotion MIAMI’s Jonah Bliss, to answer the ever-looming question: Has ridesharing plateaued? Entrepreneur and ex-aerospace engineer Harry Campbell is the founder of TheRideshareGuy.com, a blog, podcast, and YouTube channel dedicated to reaching rideshare drivers and enthusiasts alike to serve as a platform for drivers to connect and share their experiences. Always having been drawn to uncovering the inner-workings of our modern world, Harry studied aerospace engineering at UC San Diego and then worked for six years at Boeing. After a while, Harry realized a yearning to embark upon his own entrepreneurial endeavors and entered the gig-economy. When Harry started driving for Uber and Lyft in 2013, he quickly realized that there’s a lot more to getting people safely from Point A to Point B. Harry started blogging about his experiences and conversations, and TheRideshareGuy.com was born. In addition to his dedicated content on TheRideshareGuy.com, Harry continues to write for top tech publications, like WIRED, Forbes, Fusion & Business Insider. His first book, “The Rideshare Guide,” was published in 2018. Since then, Harry has continued to work on creating educational content and reference materials to help new drivers navigate the industry. The Rideshare Guy was founded in 2014 and has quickly grown into a thriving community for rideshare drivers across the globe. Harry and his team post monthly content on their blog, podcast, and youtube to help hundreds of thousands of drivers work smarter and not harder to capitalize on their full potential in the gig economy. TheRideShareguy.com is a well-informed source for not only Uber and Lyft drivers but also food delivery providers like Doordash and PostMates, scooter services like Bird, and more. TheRideShareGuy.com also offers advice and services beyond the basics of rideshare culture, and has resources for drivers spanning from insurance, taxes, policy information, mileage tracking, and even “Life After Ridesharing.” Tune into this episode as Dennis, Harry, and Jonah address trending topics in the rideshare economy, including regulatory policies and outcomes like California AB-5 and Congestion at the Curb white paper. Through these conversations and more, listen as they uncover the bigger picture of how TNCs have become a critical business model for the mobility of people and goods.
