DRIVN is a fast and reliable matching service that pairs car owners with trustworthy professional drivers, who want to work for Uber, Lyft, Doordash etc. It resolves issues of parking and car latency by creating an accountable network of car owners and drivers. The unique benefits come from DRIVN’s ability to deal with the logistical challenges of creating compatible pairs of car owners and drivers on a day-to-day basis. We solve the “who,” “when” and “where”; as well as providing insurance and processing payments. Successful completion of the pilot program s could result in 3,900 fewer cars on the road in the Bay Area, 2 acres (almost 2 football fields) freed from being parking spaces and an estimated CO2 mitigation of around 55,000 tonnes/year.
