Making RideConnect Work For You
Share rides with friends, colleagues, teammates, to family events or anytime you do things as a group
Share rides to class, local restaurants and bars, campus events or simply to hang out with your friends. Create a post with your plans. Other students that you're connected to can see it. They can either ask you for a ride, or offer you a ride when they're going out.
Inform your community of your plans to drive on a long distance trip. Accept ride offers from other who might be going that way, or offer a ride to people who have also indicated that they are interested.
Securely share rides among your family members. Use the blocking features in the My Community screen to ensure that only your family members are able to share rides with you. Post the time when you're done with work, or when school gets out so that you can better coordinate pick ups, drop offs and general coordination between everyone in your family.
Once your employees have installed RideConnect, create a group for your company (BETA feature). When all your employees use the same group code, they can share rides with one another even if they're not connected directly.
See what people are saying about RideConnect
It's a pretty cool idea. I would actually probably really use something like this!
Todd (Beta tester)
"This app appears to be quite useful and intuitive, which is no mean feat. I think this app could certainly be useful - you might also try espousing that the app can be environmental friendly as well as money saving, because by enabling quicker car pools/ride shares (ride share sounds better, I see that now), it helps save fuel consumption, thus money, emissions, and possibly time as well!"
Teddy (Beta tester)
"I think this is a great idea. Sharing a car with my sister, I find myself looking for rides. I could definitely see myself using this app with my friends and family when I needed a ride."

"I really like this idea and will try to get friends involved as well. My group of friends are always driving to this show or this area and always can pop another person in the car is the best if they knew where we were going."
Jake (Beta tester)
"RideConnect is a very clean and very innovative idea which pushes car pooling and allows people near each other to provide rides to one another. This concept would be fantastic in highly populated urban areas and metropolitan areas."
Anthony (Beta tester)
"The app seems like a very good idea! It would be awesome to get it further integrated with Facebook, too. The beta app seems pretty nailed down in terms of branding and purpose."
Amber (Beta tester)
"I really admire the concept and it's way more convenient than Uber and Lyft. You can trust these people in your area and ride with friends, neighbors, and acquaintances that are available and local, rather than mostly strangers. The idea and concept is brilliant, convenient, and useful."
