The App is only a venue that allows Drivers and Riders to match each other. The Company does not offer transportation services the Company is not a transportation company. The Company is not involved in the actual transportation provided by Drivers to Riders. As a result, the Company has no control over the quality or safely of the transportation provided as a result of your using the App. Additionally, the Company does not have any control over the truth or accuracy of the information provided by any User to the App. The Company cannot ensure that a Driver or Rider is who he/she purports to be or that a Driver or a Rider will actually complete an arranged service.
The App also provides a platform for validating distance travelled when Users are participating in various reward programs such as commuter and student challenges, the number of vehicle occupants for HOT lanes, preferred parking, and other perks associated with using the App .
You are solely responsible for your interactions with other Users. The Company is not responsible for the conduct, whether online or offline, of any User. It is possible for others to obtain personal information about you due to your use of the App and other Users may use your personal information, obtained through the App, to harass or injure you. The Company is not responsible for how other Users may make use of the personal information you provide to the App.
References to any other products, services, processes, or other information, by trade name, trademark, manufacturer, supplier, or otherwise does not constitute or imply endorsement, sponsorship, or recommendation of such, or any affiliation with, by the Company or the App.
The services the App provides may be temporarily unavailable from time to time for maintenance or other reasons. The Company assumes no responsibility for any error, omission, interruption, deletion, defect, delay in operation or transmission, communications line failure, theft or destruction or unauthorized access to, or alteration of, User communications.

You, as either a Driver or a Rider, understand and acknowledge that (i) the Company does not provide actual transportation services to Riders, (ii) the Company is not a transportation carrier. It is up to the Driver to decide whether to offer a Ride to a Rider contacted through the App and it is up to the Rider to decide whether to accept a Ride from any Drive contacted through the App. One you are connected with another User, any decision to offer a Ride to that User or to accept an offer for transportation from that User is in your sole discretion. The Company offers information and a method to connect Drivers and Riders with each other but does not provide, and does not intend to provide, transportation services or act in any manner as a transportation carrier. Therefore, the Company has no responsibility or liability for any transportation services obtained by any Rider or provided by any Driver using the App.
The parties to these Terms are you, as a User, and the Company. All references to “we,” “us,” or “our” will be construed to mean the Company. Your access and use of the Software constitutes your agreement to be legally bound by these Terms and establishes a contractual relationship between you and the Company.
These terms have the following definitions when capitalized in these Terms:
- “Cost Contribution” means an amount paid by the Rider to reimburse the Driver for the expense of operating the motor vehicle. This Cost Contribution incorporates such factors as distance, duration, time of day, and location. It may also include fees for toll roads, airports, or bridge polls. In no event will the Cost Contribution result in any profit to the Driver.
- “Ride” means a round trip between the residences, or places reasonably convenient to residences, of any or all of the Driver and Riders and a common destination, including the Driver’s and the Rider’s place of employment or education, or a place reasonably convenient to the Driver’s various places of employment or education.
Payment and Fees
Fees and charges
For each Ride, the App requires destination and pick up information. The App will display ride fees, representing the Cost Contribution for that Ride. All payments made by Riders to the Company will be made through the App.
The Company will facilitate all payments of the Cost Contribution through a third-party processing service. For each Cost Contribution greater than $0.00 (zero dollars) up to a maximum of $10.00 (ten dollars), the Company will take a fee (the “Fee”) amounting to 20% (twenty percent) or less of the Cost Contribution. (The Company, in its sole and absolute discretion, may change the Fee percentage from time to time.) The Company will make a deposit for the benefit of the Driver (into an account designated by the Driver) in the amount of the Cost Contribution less the Fee plus any taxes, regulatory, or government fees, or other amounts, as required by law.
The full amount of the Cost Contribution is charged immediately to the Rider’s authorized account upon the start of the Ride and the payment is immediately processed as described above. All payments made by the Rider are non-refundable.
Cancellation with insufficient notice and no-show fees
Users may be charged up to $10.00 (ten dollars) for cancellation with insufficient notice or no-show. Sufficient cancellation notice is considered twenty-four (24) hours notice or more.
The Company shall remit the amount due to the Driver (in accordance with the Payment processing provision above) no later than thirty (30) days after request by the Driver. The Company reserves the right to withhold any amount due to the Company under these Terms or any amount due based on breach of these Terms, pending the Company’s reasonable investigation of the breach. To ensure proper payment, Drivers are responsible for providing and maintaining accurate contact and payment information associated with their accounts. If the Company reasonably believes it is obligated to obtain tax information and a Driver does not provide this information to the Company within ten (10) days after a request in writing by the Company, the Company may withhold Driver payments until such information is provided. If a Driver disputes any payments made pursuant to these Terms, the Driver must notify the Company in writing within thirty (30) days of the payment. Failure by the Driver to timely notify the Company will result in the waiver by the Driver of any claim relating to the disputed payment. Payments will be calculated solely based on record maintained by the Company. No other measurements or statistics with regard to payment will be considered by the Company or have any affect under these Terms.
