THE RIDEON PLATFORM

RideON Canada is a transportation network company (TNC) founded in the Region of Waterloo. The RideON Canada mobile app works like any other TNC app, where a driving partner is logged in as available to drive, and the user requests a driving service. The driving partner accepts the service request, followed by picking and dropping the user at the requested locations. Once the trip completes, the driving partner is again logged in as available for more requests. The mobile app monitors and records all the details of the trip including pick-up time, duration of the trip and drop-off time and location. The app allows users to submit feedback on the services they received.

The RideON Platform provides a digital transportation network that allows registered users (“Riders/Customers/Users”) to order and receive rides from registered independent contractors (“Partners/Drivers”). Each User shall create a User account that enables access to the RideON Platform. For purposes of this Agreement, the driving services provided by Partners to Users that are matched through the RideON Platform shall be referred to collectively as the “Driving Services”. Any decision by a User to accept Driving Services is a decision made at such User’s sole discretion. Each Driving Service provided by a Partner to a User shall constitute a separate agreement between such people.

RideON Canada’s mobile application platform has two available options for riders: 3 seat sedan and 5 seat vans/SUVs. RideON conduct ID checks with partners to verify that we have the right person providing services under the RideON platform.

You acknowledge that neither RideON Canada nor its affiliates provide transportation services or function as a transportation carrier or transportation service provider or own any vehicles for transportation and that all such transportation services are provided by independent third-party contractors who are not employed by RideON or any of its affiliates.
