The Deal

  • $5 for $25 worth of on-demand car services

Sidecar is a network of vetted drivers who volunteer open seats in their own cars to give people rides. Members download Sidecar’s smartphone app which alerts participating drivers in the area to pick up riders and cart them to their destination. Once the ride is over, passengers make a donation to the driver through the app as payment.

Sidecar is now offering shared rides in the San Francisco market, which can save users up to 50% more. Customers who choose the shared ride option on the app will be matched up with someone else heading in the same direction, and the fare will automatically be split accordingly.

Sidecar LLC

Founders Sunil and Jahan created Sidecar LLC to pairs drivers who are looking to make extra money with riders in need of a lift through a free app, earning a mention in the Wall Street Journal. But the real mission behind Sidecar is a bit more altruistic. For one thing, the owners hope the service will take excess cars off the road, saving on carbon emissions and cutting down traffic. Sidecar drivers use their own car, letting riders sit in the front seat and turn on their choice of music. The shared ride experience gives riders the opportunity meet and connect with others in their city.

The team has designed Sidecar for safety and convenience. All drivers undergo a rigorous background and driving-record check before joining the team. And, once riders have been dropped off at their destination, they make donations to the driver through the app, eliminating the need to carry cash or vanilla wafers for payment.
