About RideFlag

RideFlag is a Canadian company that seeks to make a positive impact on reducing traffic congestion by making carpooling accessible. Through our proprietary technology, users can accurately verify the number of occupants within a vehicle in real-time and access HOV incentives. Incentives may include discounted or free tolls. RideFlag’s goal is to encourage the formation of carpools and reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicles (SOVs), ultimately reducing CO2 emissions. We are looking to recruit a Western BMOS student with the appropriate skill set (primarily accounting with some finance) to manage funding from external partners, as well as handle our day-to-day bookkeeping activities.
