Frequently Asked Questions
How Sameride App makes rides relevant for commuters?
The relevance is defined by Areas and Schedule accessible in-app menu. Areas need to include all your possible carpool pick-ups/drop-offs: home, parking lots, office, transit hubs. The Schedule needs to include all your possible commute days, directions and time ranges as well as drive/ride role. Having Areas and Schedule set correctly will insure commuters see and receive notifications only about relevant ride offers and requests.
Do commuters have to commute at a specific time and from/to specific locations?
No. Commuters offer/request or join/accept rides with time and locations that work best for their specific commute. Typically our commuters start the morning commute from parking lots, transit hubs or homes and end them next to their office buildings. The afternoon commuters are backward from office buildings to parking lots, transit hubs or homes.
Why express lanes can be used for free?
Typically High-Occupancy Toll (HOT) express lanes allow cars with 2, 3 or more people to travel toll-free. Check express lanes rules specific for your commute.
Do commuters have to use Sameride every day or every commute?
No. Commuters don’t have to commit to sharing commute every time. The commitments are only for rides that the commuter has offered/requested or joined/accepted. Commuters can cancel their commitment for the coming ride anytime. Just be mindful of the fellow commuters who can be affected.
