Tuber’s ride-pricing model will decrease rider wait times and empower drivers through increased transparency and an even distribution of market power.

 

Tuber was founded in 2019 by Gus Robinson. Gus is a quantitative economics and international relations student at Tufts University (A23) and was previously a Tufts 1+4 Service-Learning fellow in Cuenca, Ecuador.
