Ryde is a long distance ride sharing and delivery app that brokers the connection between people looking for a ride and drivers trying to mitigate their travel costs by earning money through dropping off passengers and making deliveries.
Ryde's mission is to:
Quickly connect drivers and passengers by matching users together based on the times passengers want to depart by and where they want to arrive.
Provide passengers with information about the driver, vehicle, and driving history so the passenger feels comfortable with their driver and vice versa.
Protect users privacy by hosting connection and communication that does not require them to publicly share their travel arrangements on social media.
Immediately book passage to secure rides to passenger's desired destination.
Create accountability for drivers to make a pleasant experience for their passengers with a rating system.
Eliminate awkward cash exchanges for the passenger and secure transaction amounts set by the driver by hosting the fare on the app.
Save passengers money by providing them with a more affordable solution than shuttles and long distance taxi services.
Help drivers lower their travel costs and earn money by marketing and arranging passengers and deliveries for them to drop off.
Decrease carbon emissions through ride sharing.
With Ryde, you can easily create your journey by setting a time frame for when you would like to leave, share how much luggage space you need, and your preferred ride conditions. Once your ride has been created, you will be matched with users who are completing the same journey as you. If no drivers are traveling the ride you have requested, you can share your created ride to the Ryde board page and drivers will be notified of your request. After your newly created ride has been shared, you can request a ride or respond to offers from drivers. You will see the driver's profile detailed with the type of vehicle, number of seats available, their completed rides and deliveries, and a 5-star rating of the driver so you feel secure with your driver. You can book and securely pay for your ride all from the Ryde app via Stripe. If you are traveling with more than one companion, you can book multiple seats on the same journey and secure even more space if you are transporting extra luggage. If you are looking for a return trip, you can easily book a roundtrip journey when you create your request. Once your journey is complete, you can rate and even tip your driver.
As a driver, there are many benefits to using Ryde, the most obvious reason is turning empty car space into passengers and deliveries to earn money. With Ryde you can set your own rates and keep 100% of your fare. Ryde actively advertises for users who are searching for rides and need deliveries so you will have plenty of opportunities to earn. Set your own driving preferences that passengers clearly understand before they get in your car. If you don't want to drop off passengers, you can opt out of giving passengers rides and exclusively help users transport their belongings. Review a passenger's profile before you accept their request. Once your ride is complete your earned fare will be deposited into your bank account via Stripe. Get notified when passengers request rides or deliveries and visit the Ryde feed to contact ride & delivery seekers directly through the app. You can invite ride seekers to your ride and adjust your fare rate based on the passenger's request.
