G-Ride: The 1st Eco-Conscious Ride Share Company
Uber and Lyft have changed the transportation industry in a huge way over the past few years. By conveniently letting you use an app with no actual cash exchange, a ride can be at your front door in a matter of minutes. G-Ride is a similar ride share company, but with a different mission. The term "G-Ride" has known to be slang for "stolen car", but this G-Ride will be completely different. G-Ride will only be using eco-friendly cars (electric, Tesla, etc). In addition, with each ride they will plant a tree. With every 100 rides, they save an acre of rainforest. One critisicm of Uber is the surge pricing; rates increase when demand goes up. G-Ride will not be using surge pricing so rates will be pretty steady. G-Ride is currently running an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for their launch.
