The cab-hailing company Uber is going to have to make some tough decisions if it wants to keep up with competition and keep drivers happy.
The company, which launched a new business model last month, is in a precarious position, not just because it has to compete with Lyft and other ride-sharing apps but also because it’s facing intense competition from competitors.
While the new business plans are being viewed as a success, Uber has to make sure that it’s making the right business decisions in the near term, said Michael Apted, co-founder and CEO of the startup.
For one thing, it’s unclear what Uber’s business model will look like as the company ramps up its service and its drivers grow and learn to compete on their own.
“The key is to keep costs low and keep customers happy, and we’re trying to do that,” Apt.
For instance, Uber will likely start with a small, fleet-based model and increase its fleet size, he said.
The company may also expand into cities in other areas, including those with low cost of living.
“Uber’s growth in cities will help us scale up quickly.
In terms of service, Uber’s growing fleet will help make the business better, and the bigger the fleet is, the more you can offer,” Afted said.
While it’s not a perfect business model, Uber says it’s still doing well.
The service has nearly 9 million active drivers, according to data from app platform TripAdvisor, and Uber says its drivers make about $10,000 per year, about half of Lyft drivers.
Uber also says its cars are more reliable than its competitors.
That’s good news for its drivers, who often complain about their rides being delayed, delayed again and again, and are constantly checking to see if their passengers are ok.
But Aftmed said Uber is a different company when it comes to its drivers and the business of working for the company.
“If you’re a driver, you have a very limited role.
You have no control over how long a ride will take or how many times you have to wait,” Aafted said, adding that Uber’s drivers don’t have the same job security as other employees.”
You’re basically in charge of your own safety and well-being,” Aftson said.
Uber’s drivers aren’t the only ones who are getting squeezed.
As Uber continues to expand, it has some big competitors, including Lyft and its competitor Didi Chuxing.
Both companies have raised a lot of money to make their services work, but Aftted said Uber has an advantage.
“We have a lot more capital that we can put into developing new features and products and improving our service and driver support,” he said, citing the fact that Uber drivers are more experienced.
“And we have a more sophisticated business model that is focused on delivering high-quality, high-value services to customers in a way that’s more cost effective,” he added.
