Jayride Group is a Sydney, Australia-based Internet company that operates Jayride.com, an online marketplace for travellers to compare the shared airport shuttle and private transfer companies.
The founders Rod Bishop and Ross Lin launched Jayride.com in January 2012 as a marketplace for ground transport to offer shared airport shuttle and private transfer companies. In the initial year, the founders spent time organising transport data and developing a transport schema for the website. They partnered with Travel brands and travel agents by selling transfers by integrating their platform on Jayride.com's API.
The company won the 2013 Seedstars World Sydney business pitching contest and received the title of Best Startup Business in Sydney. Later in the year booking systems were added, allowing travellers to pre-book private transfers and shared shuttles at fixed prices, with other modes of transport removed from the site. After Australia and New Zealand, the company expanded its operation in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and in 2015 they further expanded their business in the United States.
In January 2017, Jayride raised $1.5 million to build a global marketplace for airport shuttles and flight passenger transfers. It brought the total funding to $5 million. Later in the year, the company raised $8 million in funding for expansion in the United States.
In March 2019, Jayride announced that it has secured a finance of a $3M from Pure Asset Management Pty Ltd.
