The Lymousine mobility solution runs on Patent Pending Technology developed from a Doctoral Thesis by Michael Treasure, Lymousine's CEO & Founder. Lymousine substantially reduces poor vehicle/driver utilization rates existing within the ride sharing market where drivers have no riders for as much as approximately 50% of miles and time driven. Given these inefficiencies and the increasing dissatisfaction with existing riding sharing networks, we developed Lymousine to optimize driver revenue per hour, while minimizing driver non-revenue miles and time. Lymousine’s advanced algorithm rebalances utilization in favor of increasing driver earnings per hour, decreasing driver turnover, and reducing the aggregate driver pool needed to meet rider demand.
