RideConnect is a finalist for Ford Mobility and Austin’s City:One Challenge

White label ridesharing platform RideConnect has qualified as a finalist in Austin’s $100,000 City:One Challenge. This initiative which is powered by Ford Mobility , is a collaboration with corporate partners including AT&T, Ford Motor Company, Microsoft, and Dell Tech­nol­ogies.

The City:One Challenge, which Ford has brought to cities throughout North America, aims “to help put residents at the center of the mobility conversation” and to tap into local creativity and innovation to solve on-the-ground problems.

The specific challenge in Austin asked for proposals to “increase access to healthy living in East Austin.” Of the more than 150 proposals received, the organizers and other community partners selected a dozen to advance to the current “Refine” phase, which includes not only the Challenge team’s expert advice but feedback from the community. Austin residents can comment on and upvote their favorite proposals. Out of the 12 finalists, up to two entries will be selected to share a $100,000 prize that will fund pilots to test out the winning solution. The winners will be announced on January 21st.

The City:One Challenge seeks to address mobility issues among socio-economically underprivileged communities and seeks solutions to food desert and health access issues among the same communities.

About RideConnect

RideConnect has developed software that enables drivers to create communities of customers so that they can have their own private rideshare businesses. This simple idea is set to disrupt the ridesharing business on a massive scale. This platform was built to enable riders and drivers to avoid riding with unknown or unsafe individuals.

Ride Connect decentralizes the ride share experience for both riders and drivers while allowing everyone to have a safer ridesharing experience. Currently boasting 2000+ daily active users and over 20k downloads, with little to no marketing and public relations this platform is set for “hockey stick” style growth in 2020 and 2021 as a safer alternative to ridesharing behemoths Uber and Lyft.

Judge: No slander in Alec Baldwin's comments on parking spat

Feb 17, 2020

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin didn't slander a man in interviews about a parking dispute that turned physical, a judge has ruled as dueling lawsuits between the actor and the other driver continue. Baldwin's remarks — including claims that Wojciech Cieszkowski's driving was “really fast,” “really aggressive” and made the actor think his wife and son were about to be run over — were "hyperbole" and "rhetorical illustrations," Manhattan judge David B. Cohen wrote Thursday. “They are words of frustration with someone's driving,” not accusations that amount to slander, Cohen wrote. He tossed out Cieszkowski's slander claim, but his assault...
