What is Sidecar?

SideCar is a smartphone app that matches regular drivers in their own car with people nearby who need a ride- matchmakers for the perfect ride. It’s there right when you want it, good for the economy, good for your wallet, good for the environment and fun! The app aims to empower citizens with tools to solve our transportation gridlock. SideCar is taking true rideshare, and all the benefits it brings, nationwide.

SideCar is also celebrating 100,000 ride matches and released this cool infographic to reflect how ridesharing has evolved over the years.
