Facedrive - the new kid on the ridesharing block
Lately, I've been expressing my thought about a ridesharing company called "Facedrive", but sadly a thread has not been created here until now.
Facedrive is like Uber and Lyft, but the only difference between Facedrive and the other competitors is that they're an all-Canadian company (that is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada) that cares about sustainable ridesharing. The good thing about this new ridesharing kid on the block is that riders can choose a variety of cars - either an electric, hybrid and gas-powered car. A portion of the trips made by passengers is used to offset CO2 emissions and plant trees for example.
I've been using the service for a while now (about twice - currently, the service is available in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and most recently, Hamilton) and from my own experience has been mostly positive. The app is very similar to Uber and Lyft in terms of the interface. What's more, the folks at Facedrive Customer Service has been very friendly (for instance, when you encounter problems using the service or in my experience, have difficulty of trying to find a Facedrive driver in the vicinity of your pick-up origin within 5 minutes of requesting a ride).
- All-Canadian company
- No Surge-pricing/peak-hour pricing unlike Uber and Lyft
- Driver availability is very limited unlike Uber and Lyft
- No feature in where to leave special requests for a Facedrive driver
While it may be a while until Facedrive becomes a new player in the Canadian ridesharing block, it is definitely a warm welcome to have another player to break into the ridesharing scene and most importantly supporting a local company! I'm not sure if one of you folks have any experience using or driving with Facedrive. I'm open to all opinions.
