What Is the New Sidecar?
The new Sidecar allows riders to choose the vehicle, the driver
and the price, tailoring every ride for any occasion.
Get Better Prices
Drivers now have the ability to woo the customer (that’s you)
by offering cheaper rides! Here’s how it works:
Sidecar Drivers now have the ability to set their own price.
This allows drivers to compete for your business by lowering their rates.
Which gives you access to the cheapest rides in town.
Know the Price Up Front
And did we mention that Sidecar is the only ridesharing app that shows you the exact price of your ride? With us, you always know the trip cost before getting into the car – no surprise receipts in your inbox the next morning.
Choose Your Ride
From the fanciness of the car to the awesomeness of the driver and even the ETA of the pickup, the new Sidecar allows you to completely customize your ride experience.
Make Your Selection Based On
Quality of the Vehicle
Maybe you’ve got a hot date, or maybe you want to take Nana to her 80th in style (respect). Now you’ve got the option to elevate your ridesharing experience when duty calls.
There’s something awfully comforting in knowing who’s going to be taking you on your next adventure. Now, learn more about your driver before you make your choice.
In a rush? Sort the drivers by estimated ETA
and snag the closest ride available.
Keep your eyes peeled for drivers offering up special treats!
They’ll let you know in the Bumper Sticker section of their profile.
Have an awesome experience with a driver? Add them as a favorite by
clicking the star next to their name, and they’ll automatically show up
first if they’re online and nearby next time you request a ride.
Questions & Answers
So the same ride can have different prices?
Yes. Drivers set their own prices based on demand, the quality of their vehicle, or any other perks they want to offer (free water, treats, in-car magic shows and more). Riders can scroll through different drivers and pick which ride they want. Remember, you will always know the price up-front, so there are no surprises when you get your receipt.
