Bonobo is ride-share service which offers one tier of ride-ship with a simple concept: safely providing rides with the optional peace-of-mind of bringing the rider’s own vehicle along too. Riders travel in a private vehicle driven by its owner, for a fee arranged by means of the Bonobo app which will be available for iOS and Android.
Riders navigate through the app to request rides and payments are transacted through major credit cards after each ride.
There’s a version of the app for the drivers, linking them to the admin panel, giving them access to receive requests for rides.
Vehicle transport service by 2 person team:
The service will also offer a vehicle transport feature as well, supported by a two person team. This is convenient for unplanned circumstances when potential riders drive their vehicles and find themselves either inebriated or incapable of safely driving home. This feature can also be used simply out of convenience.
The two drivers are linked through the driver version of the app, which delivers ride requests from riders. The rider and his/vehicle will be transported to their destination by two team members: one for the rider and the other driving the rider’s vehicle closely behind.
As a unique safety feature, a panic button is available for both the rider and the driver. The button can be used at any time, should either feel threatened in any way. The panic button will dial 911 when pushed should emergency response assistance be required, which will also serve as a deterrent to ensure safety on all rides.
Drivers’ vehicles will also be equipped with dash-cams facing inside the vehicle, capturing video of every requested ride. Safety is a priority for both rider and driver with Bonobo.
All Bonobo drivers will undergo an extensive background check to ensure rider safety.
