Best-Rides is an easy-to-use, ride companion app that offers up-to-the minute ride sharing price comparisons (Uber and Lyft) along with real-time updates to your contacts when you’re traveling. Whether you’re taking a regular ride to work during the day or heading home through an unfamiliar neighborhood at night, Best-Rides lets them know when you’ve arrived safely at your destination and immediately alerts them if you do not.
How It Works
• Download the app, enter your information, and select the contacts you want to notify about your safe arrival.
• Enter a destination and select how you’ll be getting there: via Uber, Lyft, taxi or walking.
• For the first two options, you receive the pricing for them so that you can select your most cost-efficient option.
• When taking a ride with someone you don’t know, take a photo of their license plate. This image will act as an immediate deterrent, putting the driver on notice that others know the vehicle in which you’re riding.
• The app displays the path to your destination and provides you with an ETA for your trip.
• Start your trip (and the app displays where you are along the journey and if the recommended path is being followed).
• As the ETA approaches, you’ll receive an alert asking if you’ve arrived safely.
• If you respond to the alert that you’ve arrived safely, it will notify your network.
• If you do not respond to the alert, your network will receive a message stating that something might be wrong and the pictures you took along with your last GPS location.
• New name and complete redesign of the app.
• New, real-time, ride sharing price comparison tool. Never overpay for Uber or Lyft again!
• Log in easily and quickly with either your Facebook or Gmail account.
• Bug fixes and other improvements.
• New version requires permission to use phone calls. It is required so you could easily call emergency services or your contacts right from the app.
• Google services bug fixing.
Ratings and Reviews
Amazing app and so reliable!
Best Rides is an amazing app that has made me feel so safe and comfortable throughout my rides. Living in the city and hearing the scary stories about ride sharing, it’s great to know I can have trust that I will not only get home safe, but that I’m saving money along the way. The extra features like notifying my family when I’m home has been a huge relief to my family when I’m traveling late at night. Definitely recommend this app to anyone looking to ensure safety when riding home at night and also looking to save some money!
I had a huge fear of using any form transportation being a young woman in a big scary world. Not anymore thanks to this app!! Safe Ride makes all my worries vanish completely! Thank you to the genius’s who created this! If you’re a worry wart like I am I highly suggest you download this app.
I used this app when I was traveling in Europe and it really made our family feel safe. Will all the problems in the world you don’t know who is driving you around and this app really provides a way to stay safe.
