Ridesharing

We help move the world better.

What we do

Imagine a world where fleets fix themselves, customers serve themselves, and operations run themselves. Science fiction? Not at all. It’s called digital transformation, and it’s what we help fleet operators do.

Ridecell builds the technologies and solutions that unlock the full power of fleets and fleet management systems.

With our Fleet IoT (Internet of Things) Automation platform, we integrate data from sensors and multiple siloed IT systems and turn it into usable insights, digital vehicle control, and automated workflows. For our customers the result is nothing short of transformative, dramatically streamlining fleet operations and opening up new revenue opportunities.

And because our solutions are cloud-based, hardware agnostic, and integrate with existing fleet management software and ecosystems, our customers don’t need to “rip and replace.” We simply make what they already have far more efficient and productive—and move their world better.

I have been here for more than a year and I haven’t ever been at any place more focused on one mission – to enable mobility for all in the most efficient way.

Our story

While we’ve been around and accomplished many milestones, we’re really just getting started.

2009

As a grad student at Georgia Tech, Ridecell founder Aarjav Trivedi envisioned a new era of transportation services. The name “Ridecell” comes from this vision: how to get a “ride” with your “cell” phone. The first incarnation of Ridecell was a demand-response mobility service, which Aarjav and classmates ran from a Georgia Tech dispatch room. Building on the success at Georgia Tech, Ridecell started offering its technology to other top universities, including the University of Alabama and UC Berkeley, as well as to cities, campuses, and other new mobility providers.

2009

For more than a decade Ridecell has been helping businesses and organizations across the globe modernize fleet operations and take advantage of new mobility opportunities. Today our Fleet IoT Automation platform powers some of the most successful fleets in cities across Europe and North America for a world-class customer base that includes Ferrovial, Groupe Renault, Gig Car Share from AAA, and Toyota Sweden. We provide end-to-end data integration and automation solutions for fleets of all sizes: logistics and rental companies; corporate, campus, and government agencies; and carsharing services. And with a growing team of 150 professionals in offices around the globe, we’re just getting started.
