Sidecar is available in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, and Washington, D.C.
To request a ride, you simply enter your location and destination in the Sidecar app to find nearby drivers.
You can then choose the vehicle, the driver, and the price that you would like from the available rides.
Sidecar also provides a unique pricing system that allows drivers to set their own price and compete for your business, so that you get lower rates.
Sidecar Driver Referral Program
Sidecar also offers a referral program for drivers.
When a current driver refers a new driver to Sidecar, you will both receive a $50 bonus after the referred driver’s 10th ride.
Additionally, Sidecar posted on their Facebook page on 2/21/2014 that they are offering bonuses for all new drivers who sign up right now.
So you can receive an extra incentive of $50 when you complete your 10th ride, whether you sign up through another Sidecar driver’s referral or not.
Check out Sidecar and participate in the referral program to get extra bonus credits toward free rides.
