- A nearby driver calls you after accepting the order to verify your exact location
- You can also see the driver’s picture, vehicle license plate and side numbers, and a brief info on the driver. After completing a trip, you can request a paper-based receipt, or review our e-receipt sent out to your email automatically, upon payment confirmation.

Fairness, flexibility, and simplicity — these are the main principles for our new cancellation policy.
From now on, when the driver cancels an order for some reason, this order will be taken back to the list of active orders, and another driver will be able to pick it up shortly.
Goedendag, Helló, Labdien!
Our system speaks Dutch, Hungarian, and Latvian now. Be safe on the roads!

It’s really a nice app. Please fix the bug that hinders in slow internet connection. It reports an error message “No internet connection. Try again” while there is decent internet connection.
life saver app
I was in addis before this stupid covid19. i have great respect for the developers and the founders. The app works as intended. the problem is the driver and the user need to know how to utilize the app. drivers keep calling and asking you locations, instead of trusting the GPS and drive to the pined direction. the developer may need to add how to use video on the app. there is no car past midnight. there is big issues regarding safety of drivers. add options like verified driver and verified customer. or some type of reservation. To use past midnight, and charge more. when i drink, my only worries getting home safe.
Don’t roll out a service if it doesn’t work
Extremely disappointing. I used the app several times but it is now stuck on the page of last use. I downloaded the app again and still doesn’t work, only showing the page of last use. I tried to call the company and it said all operators are busy and hung up on me without the option to wait online to speak with someone. I called once again and they said they are sending someone and sent no one. Very unprofessional, if a service is this useless, then RIDE shouldn’t be offering their services.
