Our apologies for not having an update last month - our Beta launched on campus and we've been incredibly busy seeing out the launch and the many, many logistics.
In mid-September, we launched our beta at USC. The weekend before was a scramble, the Ryde members spent the whole weekend assembling all 30 bikes and riding them onto campus from our office (which is still crammed with bike boxes!). So far, we're getting positive feedback of our platform - people are getting addicted to riding their bikes everywhere and love the convenience of leaving the bike anywhere!
Our app is now fully functioning, and we're expecting an update sometime this week. Unfortunately, we are still only catering to iPhone users, but if you're an Android user and pay before the end of the semester, we will extend our life long discount to you.
If you already own a bike, and are interested in putting your bike on our platform to earn money, look out for our "Operator" events coming up next month.
It's been an exciting few weeks, so look out for us at the USC Stevens Student Innovator Showcase next Friday, October 23 where we will be pitching. Meanwhile, don't miss out on the top 10 bike inventions one must have!
See you next month!
