Ridecell, an operations platform for ride-sharing companies, laid off 35 employees (15%) last Thursday, according to a laid-off employee. Its customers are presumably struggling right now due to the nationwide lockdowns.

Ridecell joins the many transportation startups that have conducted layoffs during the coronavirus pandemic. Just yesterday, Uber increased the count of its May layoffs to 6,700 employees. Lyft laid off nearly 1,000 employees in late April. Kid-friendly ride sharing companies Zum and HopSkipDrive have also done layoffs.
