sRide is a trusted social carpooling app that helps people to carpool by connecting people like you going your way. It uses a real-time matching process to help match people going in the same direction.

The safety of our members is our top priority, and we have made our application very secure to ensure that aspect of carpooling. All our users are verified for their identity through phone and work email. User review is mandatory at the end of each ride so each user gets more and more review comments as they complete their rides. The review comments help other people to select these users based on the review comments they have got.
Recurring Ride is an advanced feature of sRide that allows you to post your daily Home-Office ride once & it auto-generates the same ride for your everyday. The ride posted by you is generated at 9:00 PM for the next day & the user does not have to post ride everyday.
Your profile says unverified because you haven’t updated your work email. All the users are recommended to put their work email. Once their work email is verified, their organization is displayed in their profile. If they haven’t added a valid work email & have added a personal email (gmail, yahoo, hotmail) or haven’t verified their work email yet, their profile will still remain unverified. The unverified users can still use the service to post & complete rides but most of our users don’t want to go with unverified users.
An unverified user is a user who is not verified as per sRide verification policies. It is still possible that you know the unverified user personally and may choose to ride with them based on his good review ratings. We suggest you vet the unverified user properly before you ride with them.

You need to buy credits only for taking rides.
When a ride match is posted, the app will inform both the ride partners – driver and the passenger the cost of the ride.
The amount of credit will be transferred from the riders account to the driver’s account net of the transaction fee charged by SRide for that ride. Riders must ensure that there is sufficient balance in their sRide accounts else buy the required credit to top up and maintain sufficient balance in their sRide account. If the account balance is insufficient, they will not be able to post a trip. The ride fee is determined in a manner so that the driver does not make a profit from the sharing of the ride.
