Quick Ride provides security at multiple levels:
A Quick Ride user claiming to work for a company is promoted to "Verified" status only if he/she completes verification process on the official email ID provided by that company. Such users can be trusted better than "Not-verified" users. Use caution when you have to travel with "Not-verified" users. We strongly suggest you to set your company name and official email ID in your profile and complete the verification process. This will increase your chances of being accepted as ride partner by others.
Users from same company:
Quick Ride can be configured to show ride partners from within your company only. To enable this option, go to Settings -> Ride match preferences -> Tick "Same Company" -> Save. After this preference is set, you will be shown only those rides that are posted by Quick Ride users from your company. Similarly, your ride will be shown to your colleagues only.
Users from same gender:
Quick Ride can be configured to show ride partners belonging to your gender only. To enable this option, go to Settings -> Ride match preferences -> Tick "Same Gender" -> Save. After this preference is set, you will be shown only those rides that are posted by Quick Ride users of same gender. Similarly, your ride will be shown to other users of same gender only.
Average rating from other users:
After every successful shared ride, each user is given an opportunity to rate the co-rider on a scale of 1 to 5 along with a brief feedback. Quick Ride shows the average rating along with no of times the user is rated. Prefer users with higher average rating and with more no of users having rated the user. For e.g., if there are four matched users to choose from:
- • UserA with 4 stars and rated 90 times
- • UserB with 5 stars and rated 3 times
- • UserC with 4 stars and rated 50 times and
- • Users with 3 stars and rated 100 times, prefer UserA over other users.
- • See "Do's and Don'ts" in our website for tips on how to get better ratings from other users.
In spite of all these, when you meet your ride partner, if you don't feel comfortable sharing the ride, just cancel your ride or unjoin from the ride. There is no obligation to continue against your gut feeling.
