Ride Hailing and Ride Scheduling
Riders and Drivers can schedule their rides or send ride hails
Send a ride hail to all drivers in your community, or the entire RideConnect ecosystem.
For drivers, receive ride hails from riders in your community, or from the entire RideConnect ecosystem. Make offers on scheduled rides from the RideBoard. Make money by charging for rides. RideConnect does not charge fees per ride.
Agree on Pricing
Riders and Drivers can negotiate the best price for the ride
Drivers and Riders can announce what they're willing to pay or charge for a ride on the RideBoard.
RideConnect does not force anyone to charge for a ride, nor do we take a cut per ride.
Riders and Drivers can negotiate a rate that works for that ride, for them.
Privacy and Safety
It's your safety, so we give you tools to decide how much safety is enough
Choose which drivers or riders can see your scheduled rides or driver availability. Use a handle to mask your identity from second tier communities. Block people in your community from ridesharing with you, or even block their entire community.
Request background checks from drivers to vet them more thoroughly.
Private Rideshare Channels
Broaden your customer base with rideshare channels
Create rideshare channels for your work colleagues, football league or meetup group. Keep them separate and rideshare with a purpose.
Rideshare channels lets drivers set different prices for different customer groups.
Riders can also use rideshare channels to group their favorite drivers by geography, interest or personal need such as female only drivers, culturally sensitive drivers or anything that is important to them.
Making RideConnect Work For You
Share rides with friends, coworkers, friends and teammates when 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."
firstname.lastname@example.org (Beta tester)
"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."

About Our Company
We are changing the way people share rides
We all are familiar with ridesharing, ride hailing and smartphone apps.
So we wondered, why not enable drivers to create communities of customers so that they can have their own rideshare business?
Why should riders be forced to pay a lot of money when they could negotiate a reasonable rate with their driver?
Why should a company stand between riders and drivers? Let's just connect riders and drivers in a private environment.
At RideConnect, we make a ridesharing platform that can be used by anybody to create their own rideshare.
Drivers, riders, families, companies and even cities can use RideConnect to alleviate traffic congestion, reduce drunk driving, make money or simply do a good deed. Really, the only limit is your imagination.
The RideConnect ridesharing platform is unique in the features it offers at a low subscription price.
