I am really puzzled why other Ridesharing companies have not tried to capitalized on the New Jersey market,being that the state is a 'GOLDMINE' for RideSharing company profits..and obviously one of the few states that Ridesharing has been successfully operating for over 2 years without any form of Government regulations(with the execption of Newark recently)..

There are regulations in NJ it's just that most Rideshare drivers ignore or do not know what they are.

Sidecar is now defunct. Sidecar's assets have been sold off to General Motors who has a partnership with Lyft.

As for Juno, Gett and Via ( all Israeli companies BTW) they only deal with licensed professional cars and drivers.

Makes sense, Lepke ..but if you look at it,The biggest ride sharing company(UBER) built their whole Empire by doing business without Licensed or professional drivers..

They built it with out licensed or professional drivers because as independent contractors it is each drivers responsibility to understand and follow all laws. UBER is a technology company not an employer.

Jersey's a dump and so are the rates!
Ridesharing is operating because it grew up so big and so fast, that now Trenton's waiting to be properly greased. Once they try to regulate the market like NYC, uber and the rest will leave because once thing they won't do, for sure, is raise rates to help drivers offset the regulations expenses (which will increase, by the way!!).

Goldmine?! NYC! Goldmine in the past? Hoboken and after the latter resorted to an arcane law to keep ridesharing away from the city, protecting the mayor's flee in the process, many other municipalities followed suit. I remember Hoboken in the past, when inbound trips were a walk in the park becauSe surge rarely went down south of 3.x. Rain or snow in Hoboken?! 5x, 6x then the crackdown came and the party was over. Now y'all see what Jersey's all about: cheap entitled @@@@s, who think you're their personal driver and expect a 10 star rating from you.

'GOLDMINE' is referring only to the Ride sharing companies for the fact that they cut the rates so low but increase the Slave Labor,was not ising Goldmine towards DRIVER earnings,that would be ridiculous.

Then don't drive unless there's an event or high surge or inclement weather. See, tomorrow and Sunday, MetLife will be lit with Guns & Roses on both nights and futbol in the morning. I bet UBER will raise the surge around 4x and once you venture into the area, drop it to 1.2x. Advise anyone going? Stay away from the river and whenever pinged, CALL. After the concert, stay by that Wendy's near the stadium to pick up concert goers, DONT TAKE ANY INTO NYC!? Do as I used to and ask them "WHERE ARE WE HEADING, NOT NAMED HOBOKEN, PATH OR NYC?"

If it's a suburbs ride, take it! Be smart

Rideshare companies who set up shop in Jersey, will do it with rates lower than the market's leader which in this case is UBER. Lyft is cheaper, whomever's next, will be cheaper and so on and so forth.

If they don't have drivers to move customers, will have no choice but to either raise the rates to pre-crackdown levels or leave the state altogether. That's the only way y'all can protest or strike... A sit down of sorts! As shady as they are, they'll configure the algorithm to skim your wages if you're a Event Surge Driver, as a way to punish you into driving more for them.
