Drive For Us
Earn Money on Your Schedule
As we continue to grow and expand into new cities, we are continually looking for new drivers, who we call Care Partners. Our Care Partners are kind, patient, service-minded individuals that are willing to always walk with their rider from the door to their car. While we do expect more than other ride-sharing companies, we pay more as well.
Most of our jobs are Monday – Friday from 7:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m. However, we do have jobs on the weekend as well. You are able to see all of the details of the job when it is offered to you, including pick up and drop off locations, date and time of the ride, age and gender of the rider and your potential earnings. You then decide if you would like to take the job now if it is an on-demand job – or add it to your schedule for later that day or week.
Our drivers are patient, service-minded individuals with excellent time-management skills and are thoroughly vetted. They must also meet the following requirements:
- 25 years or older
- Successfully pass a 7 year local and national criminal background investigation
- Checked against the National Sex Offender Database and the Terrorist Database
- Successfully pass a social security trace

How much money can a Care Partner make? (Approx.)
Care Partner earnings are based on mileage, time, number of passengers and waiting time (if incurred). While we do expect more of our drivers than other ride-share companies, we pay our drivers more for meeting those expectations.
How long is the Application process?
Care Partners first apply online and then follow the steps sent to them in an email. They will create their profile in our driver app. This includes photos of their car, insurance, a brief bio, vehicle registration, etc. We review your profile and then advance you through the on-boarding process, consisting of online orientation, a background investigation, in-person car inspection and training. The length of time it takes to complete the process can vary from one day to a week or more, based on the time it takes to complete each step.
Can a passenger rate the Care Partner?
The person booking the ride and the passenger have the ability to rate the driver in the app after their ride.
I bought a new car, can I change it on my profile?
A new car must go through the same approval process as your original car. Start by emailing all vehicle information to CarePartnerSupport@SendaRide.com. Please include photos of the car (Front, Back, Side), insurance, registration, license plate. Please include in your email the year, make, model, # of seats and # of miles. Our support team will review and upload your new information and you will be sent available times for your car inspection.
I bought a new phone. How do I download the app?
Notify CarePartnerSupport@SendaRide.com of any phone or vehicle changes; then follow the instructions below:
— Android users: Download the SendaRide Care Partner app in the Google Play Store and Login
— iOS Users: Open this link on your phone to download https://carepartner.sendaride.com/sendapplink.html
I arrived on time, but the passenger is not here…Do I still get paid?
If your passenger is no longer in need of transportation and did not cancel prior to your arrival you can cancel the ride and will be paid based on the ride estimate.
How do I receive jobs?
Care partners receive a notification on their cell phone when a job is booked so you do not have to be online to receive jobs. When you receive a notification, open the app to review the job card and ride details. These include pick up and drop off locations, date and time of the ride, age and gender of the rider and your potential earnings. You then decide if you would like to take the job now if it is an on-demand job – or add it to your schedule for later that day or week. You can choose to accept or reject the job. Most of our rides are scheduled so you can accept them around your schedule.
Am I required to have any special car insurance?
Ride-share drivers are always encouraged to carry the TNC (Transportation Network Company) Endorsement on their personal auto policy for their protection. SendaRides’s insurance covers the passenger.
When are the majority of jobs?
85% of our jobs are booked in advance. The majority of these occur weekdays between 7:00 am – 9:00 pm. Care Partner’s can accept these jobs in advance and plan out their week.
