Is it legal to carpool/rideshare on RideAlong?2023-05-29T13:07:32+00:00

Understanding carpooling/ridesharing RideAlong facilitates carpooling or ridesharing, where drivers offer their available seats to passengers heading in the same direction and share the trip costs without making a profit.

It is important to note that carpooling/ridesharing on RideAlong is distinct from ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft. Ride-hailing services provide on-demand transportation, where passengers request a driver to transport them from one location to another in exchange for financial compensation. Such services operate more like taxi services and fall under different legal regulations.

  1. The driver and passenger(s) share a trip with a common origin and destination.
  2. The driver does not exceed one return trip per day.
  3. The driver receives contributions towards trip costs and does not make a profit.
  4. The vehicle’s seating capacity does not exceed ten passengers.
