Spare Rides is an innovative new ridesharing app that is designed to make it easier than ever for people in the western Canadian city of Vancouver to get to work while meeting interesting new people along the way.
The app essentially connects drivers with spare seats with riders who are heading the same way. The rider pays 50 cents per kilometer while the driver gets 70 per cent of that payment. The allure of social interaction on an everyday level is also something that should draw many users.
At a time when automotive traffic is choking many urban cities, this ridesharing app comes as a welcome option as it will encourage people to fill up their cars with people rather than take up room on the roads and pollute the environment.
