We’ve been there the same as you-our customers and drivers.
We all experienced the happy moments, struggles and challenges in your life in college and in the hospital. Then we thought of giving a solution for your problems by giving you an enhanced service that other competitors cannot beat (or very hard to beat).
As a rider, we all have had experience of finding a dependable ride around the clock with a peaceful mind of safety. Dependable airport ride in the early morning was always a challenge. Fixed or a reliable estimate of the fare was almost hard to find by. SKY Rides born in such an environment.
As a college student, SKY Rides founder had experience all above. SKY Rides born as the solution of “personally important problems” as an international student [in a new country] where not much help could not be expected or scared to ask initially [though there might be generous helpful people around]. With a “fear” he had and with a hope to make other students experience a better one, he jumped to help others with the idea of offering rides of his own minivan to students who were in need.
As a result, the very first seed of the college community-based Detroit Rideshare service SKY Rides born in 2015 as an LLC. Students at Wayne State University were benefited with the rides. News spread with the medical residency candidates and resident doctors of DMC and Henry Ford Hospitals/Health Systems. New drivers recruited; mobile app introduced. Our undergraduate founder Kasun graduated with a business degree from Wayne State University. Then changes occurred.
Founder’s restricted capacity by the immigration laws couldn’t stop the SKY Rides from helping the community. Eased restrictions after the graduation, and conversion of the LLC into an INC, that gave more control, autonomy did not limit the quality and capacity of the service but enhanced. Sergio Jimenez joined as a consulting partner to the company.
