Andrew J . Hawkins of The Verge wrote an article detailing his expierence with new transportation network company, Juno:

What makes this company any different from Uber? Juno is offering drivers $50 a week just to keep the app turned on during their normal working hours. This is so the company can collect data, familiarize drivers with the app and to incentivize them to keep the riderless Juno on their radars. The startup is promising to take a smaller cut of each fare —€” 10% compared to Uber's 20-25% —€” for at least the first two years of operation. Perhaps the most intreging benefit, however, is the one billion worth of the company's founding shares reserved just for the drivers.

Talmon Marco, the main investor in the service, said, "When we looked at Uber, we saw an opportunity. The fact is they're not treating drivers right, and they're still not. So there's an opportunity for somebody like us."

Although it's not open to the public just yet, Hawkins was able to use Juno because he was riding with one of the company's employees. Acccording to them, he was the first non-employee to use the service.
