In-Transit Safety Measures
The organization will continuously reinforce that the safety of themselves and their passengers is always the number one priority. In scenarios where a RYDR(s) behavior is believed by the driver to be jeopardizing the safety of those in the vehicle, the driver holds the right to refuse service to that person(s). Standard protocol is expected to be followed by the driver, and the first measure to be taken can be heightened if the driver deems it necessary. First action to be taken is a verbal warning stating that they will not complete their ride if the unruly behavior continues. Second level of action a driver should take is to pull over into a lighted, populated area and ask the RYDR to remove themselves from the vehicle. If they continue to refuse, the driver should call the police to have the RYDR removed. The driver will be required to file a complaint to the Driver Operations Supervisor after the situation has been handled. Depending on the severity of the matter, the RYDR will either be placed on a no-tolerance probation period or immediately removed from the EZ-RYDR service without refund. EZ-RYDR will never waiver from maintaining a superior safety environment that protects all parties involved. The SOS button mentioned in the RYDR-TO-DRIVER in-transit controls will also be available to the driver for emergency situations.
A Driver applicant will be disqualified as a potential driver if they:
Have been convicted of more than three moving violations during the past three-year period, or one major driving violation in the past five-year period, including, but not limited to, attempting to evade the police, reckless driving, or driving on a suspended/revoked license

Periodically, Promotional Codes (also referred to as "Promo Code") will be offered to users. These promo codes can vary in scope, including a percentage discount, dollar discount, or number of free weeks. Under the scenario that the promo code is temporary, meaning the discount is only applicable for a predefined period, the user agrees to pay the regular subscription cost for the associated subscription period they applied the promo code to. For example, a user applies a promo code that gives them access to 1 free week of rides, which can be applied to a weekly or monthly subscription. A week of free rides will be available for use. Once that week is over, the user will automatically be charged the regular, full price of that particular subscription. The user agrees to this policy by applying the provided valid promo code to a chosen subscription.
