February 5, 2019

Press Release

The Nickel Ride, an eco-friendly OOH advertising rideshare service that connects communities with local businesses, today announced its decision to start hiring Brand Ambassadors as paid drivers for the company. As of February 1, 2019, The Nickel Ride adopted a policy that will treat the Brand Ambassador driver position as an employee position. Further, all current independent contractor Brand Ambassadors have been converted to employees. Additionally, the Brand Ambassador position comes with benefits to ensure drivers receive a competitive and attractive opportunity within the rideshare industry.

With the recent infusion of venture capital funds that allow for expansion and evolution of our business model, we want to make sure to keep up with the growing demands of our ridership,” said Judah Longgrear, Founder & CEO of The Nickel Ride. “One of our top priorities is to continually improve the ridership experience with The Nickel Ride. By hiring our Brand Ambassadors as paid drivers, we can ensure that we have the most reliable and committed drivers behind the wheel of our vehicles.”

This initiative to financially compensate and offer benefits to drivers is part of the overall expansion of our business model as The Nickel Ride lays the groundwork for the expansion into larger cities later this year. By offering a paid driving position, The Nickel Ride can attract a larger qualified pool of individuals to join the team and execute our mission to help bring free rides to cities throughout the country.

I absolutely love driving for The Nickel Ride because I get to meet so many great people. The riders I pick up are always so friendly and tip generously. Who knew giving free rides could be so lucrative!” said one Nickel Ride Brand Ambassador.

The Nickel Ride is always on the lookout for exceptional drivers looking for a wonderful opportunity to provide free rides to thankful riders all while getting paid to do so.
