For your daily commute, you can create a ride once and Quick Ride will automatically create rides everyday based on your weekly repeat pattern and an end date (optional), which is fully customizable. Varying timings by the day of week can be set. For any particular week day, you have the option to choose a different time or not to schedule a ride at all. The rides are created in advance, on a rolling basis, and notified to you with options to 'Reschedule' or 'Cancel'.
Route groups for regularly used routes can be created by any user. For example, Group can be created for routes like HSR Layout to Manyata Tech Park, Koramangala to Electronic City.
If you create a ride matching an existing Route Group, or your Home location and Office location matches any Route Group's start and destination points in our database, you will get an invitation to join.
Moreover, whenever you create a ride, you can post the invite to the matching group. All members who are part of the group get notified � coordination is a breeze! You do not need to open another app to communicate with others interested in this route.
Many Users liked the ride-group Chat feature of Quick Ride version 1.x. We just made it more useful and brought it up to the next higher level. With version 2.0 onwards, even before joining a ride with someone, you can communicate through the chat feature. You can communicate before sending an invite, or even before deciding to accept or reject an invitation received. Assumptions or hesitations are a thing of the past.
You know your friend/contact will also be traveling around same time to a nearby place. But she/he may have forgotten to post a ride or not got into the habit of sharing rides. The feature to invite someone from your contacts, can notify your friend to post a ride and join you through Quick Ride, or even to start sharing rides with others. All that he needs to do is 'Accept', and the system automatically creates his ride and joins you. Isn't it cool?
Most people have preferences about which route they take. While creating a ride, a user can customize the route now, through a easy to use user interface. Once you create a ride with a customized route, you may use the same ride to 'Repeat once' or 'Repeat regular', to avoid customizing again.
The system will show the default pickup and drop points, based on overlapping routes. But these may not be convenient at times. Someone may prefer to be picked up at a different point further ahead that is less congested. Another user may want to be dropped off slightly earlier, compared to that shown by the system, in order to find preferred connecting options. These choices are possible now using the Quick Ride app version. When you find a matching Rider, you can view the route path and change the pickup and drop points from there, before joining the Rider.
You can choose the ride type (select 'Passengers' to offer a ride, else select 'Riders' to find a ride) in first screen itself and can also see nearby options on the map.
