Dos and Don’ts of Rideshares
Don’t get in the vehicle without meeting the driver face- to- face. Ask all the questions upfront to help narrow down your list of candidates. Suggest a video chat or public meeting to confirm their identity. Even after meeting in person it would be in your best interest to meet them outside of the vehicle before taking the ride.
Don’t approach the car with your hands in your pockets or in a bag. This can put the driver on alert and fearful that you have a weapon. This can be avoided by having the items in your hand(s) before you get in the car.
Don’t get picked-up or dropped-off at your residence. Provide an address of a nearby store or clubhouse that you can easily walk to.
Don’t give your contact information out too soon. Wait until you’ve asked all the important questions to eliminate giving your information out to too many candidates. This includes an email address, home address, and phone number. Social media has made it very easy to use this information to pull up/access someone’s social media page to find out where they work, live, and even hang out.
Don’t leave the keys in the car when you make stops. Of course you want the passengers to feel comfortable but it’s better to be safe than sorry.
Keep your wallet in your pants and not your purse or bag. Depending on the situation it may be best to keep some of your valuables in the trunk within a closed bag or suitcase if possible. This should also help with items being misplaced.
Share your location on your mobile device with friends and family. Apple has a feature on the iPhone called “share your location” it allows you to share your location with a contact so they can track your location in real time.
Trust your instincts. If the offer seems too good to be true it usually is. If they do not want to provide a clear picture, or they can’t meet your demands it’s best to spend the time it takes to start over and view more candidates. Don’t be afraid to ask that they upload better pictures.
Discuss the route and expected stops in advance. This will ensure everyone gets to their location at their expected time. It will also reduce fear when everything’s going as planned.
Write a review on Haydash even if you didn’t accept or offer the ride. Even a review about your communication with the member can be useful to someone else.
Discuss payment arrangements upfront- Pay or collect the money as soon as you get in the car. This way there are no unexpected stops to the bank, and everyone can relax and enjoy the ride.
Discuss unexpected stops as soon as possible- Fuel up your car, get snacks, stop by the bank, etc. before picking up the rider. If you are already aware that you will need to make an unexpected stop be sure to share it with the driver or rider in advance. This way they can factor it in when calculating how long it will take to arrive at the destination.
Have the car serviced and cleaned before offering a ride- riders have the ability to write reviews about their experience. There’s a big chance that it will include the condition of the car and your cleanliness. You don’t want the rider to have to wait as you slide everything off the seat and onto the floor. Since they’re traveling in a small space, make sure there’s nothing in their way so they can be comfortable.
Never text or try to operate your phone while driving- Everyone’s expecting you to offer a safe ride. Please don’t text while driving. If using a navigation system, try asking the rider to update the navigation system, if needed.
Ask before eating or drinking- Pay attention to everyone’s post. They generally will state if food and drinks are allowed. As a driver, the rider may be uncomfortable if you are eating and driving. Ask the rider if they are comfortable with you eating your meals while driving. You can also plan short resting breaks at a rest area so that you can eat a meal.
Throw away your trash when you take pit stops- everyone will enjoy less clutter in small spaces.
Keep your hands to yourself- When taking a rideshare, conversations can become personal. Sometimes we tend to tell our life story and get comfortable with others very quickly. We tend to communicate with our hands by throwing them in the air or high fiving in agreement. Try to keep in mind that it can make other riders uncomfortable
Keep everyone updated- Let your rider/driver know the night before that you’re still coming and sending a text when you’re 30 minutes away will give them a good idea of when you’ll arrive.
