How It Works
How it Works
At Common Courtesy, we bridge the gap between our riders in need and popular ride-sharing services, Lyft AND Uber. Our users call us to schedule a ride, and we schedule a driver to pick them up at their desired time and place. We then coordinate the ride by alerting the ride-share driver of whom to pick up, and then we call our rider once the driver has arrived. We ensure that the trip goes smoothly by tracking our rider's trip and calling them once the trip has concluded.
We offer several options to fund riders. There are two primary types of accounts: Chapters and Personal Accounts. Chapter accounts are created by organizations wishing to provide transportation to all of their members, for example a church group could create a fund only available for their members. The organization provides the initial funds that are in their account used to give their members rides and then the organization or other donors can donate money to chapter accounts. A personal account is opened to be used by one specific person. Similarly to chapter accounts, others can contribute money to the personal accounts.
All riders must first become a registered rider by completing an application form and $15 fee. Download an application HERE.
