GreenRide allows drivers to share their empty car seats in real time. They enter their destination at the start of the journey and enjoy free in app premium turn by turn navigation.
When a passenger makes a real time pick up request we identify a driver on a similar journey and send them the request stating: who the passenger is, the estimated additional time to their journey, and the money they will receive. Once accepted, our turn by turn navigation directs them to the passenger.
Passengers use the app to find drivers doing similar journeys to the one they need to do. All in real time.
The driver recovers the cost of the journey from the passenger, set at a level determined by HMRC. At this level earnings are tax free and no special insurance or license is required. For passengers this means they get door to door transport at the price of public transport.
