Reducing costs and saving the planet, one emptyride at a time!
Our emptyride platform is a brand new travel service operating in the licensed private hire/chauffeur car market. It aims to fix and eliminate the problem of empty leg vehicle journeys and democratize the current market of booking private hire rides.
When drivers take customers on intercity trips, to airports and generally when travelling over longer distances, either the outward bound leg or return leg to their home base is often without a customer (‘empty leg’). The empty leg is often associated with wasted costs for the driver/private hire company in fuel and road tax without earning revenue from the empty leg.
Our research strongly indicates that drivers/private hire companies would be willing to significantly reduce their normal fare to fill an empty leg portion of a journey. This perfectly aligns with customer expectations to obtain rides at superb value for money which leaves both customer and driver.
Emptyride aims to solve these issues. Our platform connects drivers with potential customers, so that drivers can maximize their trip revenues, and customers can find intercity rides within their budgets, as well as reducing their carbon footprint.
