What We Believe
We believe in letting people ride the way they want. Riders can choose a personal car or taxi, whether to ride up front or in the back, and whether to ride in quiet or while listening to music.
We strive to provide fair pricing for riders, transparent policies for drivers, and awesome customer support for both riders and drivers. We are always looking for creative ways to make our customers happy!
