The Benefits of Using Tribal Rides
The benefits of using Tribal Rides are ever expanding and will continue to unfold themselves, but for now, here are a few reasons why and how one uses Tribal Rides.
Deployment Planner is just one of many successfully released software decision support system applications designed and developed by our Tribal Rides team. This particular system analyzes call demand for Emergency Response/First Responder entities, like ambulances and hospitals, and anticipates “future call volume” by geographical region and develops least-cost, best coverage, quickest response time schedules. It has been used by the largest ambulance companies and many hospitals in the U.S. to improve service, reduce cost, and provide quicker responses to accidents and emergencies – it can save lives.
Most of the day, our car is sitting in the driveway, or a parking spot, or a garage. That is to say, we only use our cars a tiny fraction of the time. Tribal Rides is creating a way to make money off the time that our cars are not in use. Because this is an autonomous vehicle, while you're sitting at work, you can send the car into the ecosystem and generate revenue without ever having to lift a finger. Essentially, you can pay off your car through the blockchain, all by allowing it to do the work for you.
Environmental and Fiscal Benefits
In the United States our cities are expanding, and the suburban daily automobile commute has proven un-scalable overcrowding infrastructure. The average American spends nearly as much annually on cars, car expenses, and fuel as they do on housing. This is proving to be unsustainable both fiscally and environmentally. While electric vehicles reduce some of the environmental burden they don’t improve our clogged roadways or greatly reduce the cost burden of ownership. Ride sharing has become a popular alternative to taxi services and traditional car pools.
We believe the emergence of autonomous vehicles (self-driving cars) will bring another wave of transformation, making carpooling safer, easier and more convenient, therefore reducing the number of cars on the road and the level of damaging emissions.
Expanding Car Ownership Models
One person owns the car and, through the use of Tribal Rides, can garner revenue by deploying the vehicle when not in personal use. The owner will be able to use money earned to pay off the car or to use the money as they please. The constraints created make it so the car always services its owner first.
Any group of friends, family members, neighbors, etc. can go in together on the purchase of a vehicle. They have priorities over its use and schedules and, like the individually owned car, the car can go out and accrue revenue when it's not being used. Not only is this car now a means of connection within a community; it's a revenue source.
A community, whether it be a school, a neighborhood, a workplace or another may purchase a fleet of vehicles that are accessible to those who reside in or take part in that community. This means a car can be sent out to take a group of kids to soccer practice and then upon dropping them off, take someone else to the grocery store, only to then be returned to a central location.
A person looking to start a business may purchase a fleet of vehicles, or an existing business may do this, and use these cars primarily as a revenue-building endeavor. Much like existing car companies, they will be sent out to drive patrons to and from locations, but, unlike current ride share programs, they won't be driving without purpose waiting for the next fare, leading to more traffic and emissions; they will be traveling in the most optimized fashion.
Non-Profit or Company Owned
Entities like churches, or large organizations may purchase a fleet of vehicles for their employees to use. The company operates as a central authority and is able to send out cars to manage demands. This could benefit companies who currently reimburse travel and parking costs, or it could be a more efficient way for employees to travel between multiple offices and locations within the company.
