Rideshare App CueRide Offers Discounted Rides to Get Atlanta Voters to the Polls
CueRide, the new rideshare app that promises to put drivers first, is entering the rideshare app industry with a mission: to get voters to the polls on January 5th. Atlanta voters will enjoy $10 in ride credits to the polls for the State Senate’s critical runoff election. Besides supporting riders and their right to vote, the app disrupts the traditional rideshare model by putting drivers back in control of their earnings. CueRide’s model steers the ridesharing industry in the right direction by combating high commission fees and reduced take-home pay for their drivers.

“From inception, ridesharing has been more than just a means of convenience; it has created an additional stream or primary stream of income for entrepreneurs. However, the model is beyond broken. When you look at how fares are split between the ridesharing companies and drivers, the numbers are astounding. Companies like Uber and Lyft keep over 35% of the revenue, leaving drivers with the short end of the stick. I created CueRide to put control back in the driver’s hand. The app’s key feature allows drivers to collect 100% of their fare without paying commission fees,” says Founder James Whitaker.

With unemployment at record highs, CueRide’s goal is to support full- and part-time drivers so they can earn more while also experiencing a sense of community, another aspect CueRide believes is missing. Riders can safely get to their destination, and with a clear conscience, knowing that their full fare is going to their driver.
“A culture of connectedness is missing from ridesharing. We want drivers and riders to feel like they are a part of the CueRide fabric, knowing their personal and professional gains, as well as experience, is woven into the success of our company,” says Joshua McKenzie, Chief Marketing Officer.
