The "rideshat" companies always lose money. They are not profitable at all. It's why there always trying to get funding. If nobody funded them. They would be out business tomorrow. You can't subsidize rides by giving bonuses to riders and drivers. It doesn't work like that. They'll be going the way of sidecar.
