Our business model is that city / zip code based ride share clubs with no more than 30 to 60 members each can operate more safely, efficiently and cost-effectively than large Ride Share Enterprises. Our members no longer want the liabilities of driving, auto ownership and maintenance for a variety of reasons. Our members pay nothing until a Reliable Rider Club in their city activates with a minimum of 30 members. Monthly or Quarterly online Zoom meetings are scheduled for clubs to self-manage, customize, and improve their Ride Share operational efficiencies and policies. Each club will align their management policies with their member preferences and decisions. Since the clubs are self-managed, their members select the Autos, Drivers, Insurance, Fuel and Maintenance providers for their club. Reliable Rider, LLC facilitates the administrative support, IT infrastructure support and the background checks on potential members and drivers for the clubs. The opportunities for social and business networking within each club are numerous.
Clubs hire 3 pre-qualified (background checked) drivers for every 30 club members. A driver can be suspended or terminated by a majority vote of the club members based on documented complaints or concerns.
All club members receive background checks of criminal history prior to their membership being activated. A membership can be suspended or terminated by a majority vote of the club members based on documented complaints or concerns.
Means safer rides, because the age, quality and maintenance of the vehicles is transparent to all club members and drivers. Club vehicles are serviced and inspected weekly on Saturday mornings.
People are usually creatures of habit. Our club members already have their routines or habits well established and our technology identifies these members’ patterns or preferences and plans ahead conjointly for everyone’s benefit. Members already have their favorite grocery stores, restaurants, bars, music events, sporting events, airports, hair salons, doctors, dentists, retail stores etc.
The cost of individually owning and operating an auto is expensive and it includes: purchasing and financing the car, depreciation, insurance, maintenance, tires, fuel, insurance, repairs, taxes, license, title and registration. For vehicles driven about 15,000 miles a year, average car ownership costs were $8,469 a year, or about $706 a month, in 2017, according to AAA
Our clubs are attractive to Senior Citizens who no longer want to drive or individually own vehicles.
