DinkumRide, a rideshare facility started by 2 Indians, 10 pc profit goes to charity

A new rideshare app already launched in Western Australia and ready to launch in other states is delivering its drivers the highest commission rates and pledging 10% of its profits to charities supporting homelessness across the country- now that’s fair Dinkum!

This latest rideshare technology is putting drivers and Aussies back in the driver’s seat, providing fairer working conditions and higher commission rates. By keeping its funds and taxes within the country, DinkumRide is making its contribution to the Australian economy.

On the other hand, tech giant Uber were found to have made a gross profit of $785m providing ride and meal services to Australians but ended up paying only $8.5m in company tax, indirectly resulting in opportunity loss for the Australian Government, impacting the nation’s economy.

According to the last Census (2016), 9,005 people were experiencing homelessness in WA, with a total of 116,427 homeless people nationally. Tackling the issue in classic Aussie-style, DinkumRide drivers and passengers have the opportunity to vote for their preferred homelessness charities, which then builds a list of Australian-recommended charities to receive regular donations from DinkumRides’ profit.

Rajesh Vuppala, founder of DinkumRide says,”We wanted to create a technology that not only supported Australians to get back in the driver’s seat when it comes to earning but also plays an active role in giving back to the community after a tough year.”

Since its launch in December 2020, DinkumRide has already expanded to more than 700 drivers, as its true-blue value of Aussie fairness welcomes opportunities for old and new rideshare drivers. Career instability has been at an all-time high in the wake of 2020, and while WA has popular offshore rideshare companies, Uber and Didi, running full steam ahead to provide work for Australians, DinkumRide enters the market offering the highest commission rates on record.

Some competing ride share apps penalise drivers for not meeting high quotas of rides, late acceptance of jobs, or failing to show the driver the final destination until they accept that journey, which can often blindly lead drivers into a route they don’t want to take, he said.

“We believe these small actions can often see drivers treated like employees when then the reasons for choosing a ride-share career are independence, flexibility and choices around the way they work,” he eaborated.

Gurnam Singh, co-founder of DinkumRide, said,” The vision we have created with DinkumRide is to help boost the economic growth in our country by creating job opportunities”.
“Our main approach is to be transparent with the drivers by providing them with a huge 85% of every fare and contributing 10% of its profits to charity initiatives supporting homelessness across Australia,” he said.
