TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Facedrive Inc. (TSXV: FD), (“Facedrive”) the first Canadian peer-to-peer, eco-friendly ridesharing network, announces its official expansion into the Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge region (“KWC”) on October 25th, 2019. Facedrive offers residents and visitors a safe and easy way to get around the city only with a few taps on their mobile device. Unlike others, Facedrive is not just another rideshare – it is 100% Canadian and is also eco-friendly, focussing on vehicle emissions reduction. Customers can request rides in electric, hybrid and gas-powered vehicles through the Facedrive app.
Facedrive is now creating opportunities for local talent, by offering drivers easy registration and a partnership model where drivers keep 85% to 90% of the rideshare fare for all completed rides. Drivers are covered by insurance, keep 100% of the tip and have access to LIVE Canadian support.
Riders concerned about rising global temperatures can reduce the carbon footprint in the environment by activating Facedrive's initiative of planting trees locally, with every ride fare. Kitchener, Waterloo and Cambridge riders can also count on Facedrive to avoid surge pricing, unlike its competitors.
Chairman of Facedrive, Sayan Navaratnam, adds, “We continue to offer fair pricing and ethical business practices to riders and new drivers. Our commitment to safety is paramount, and we employ an extensive driver screening process ensuring that all our drivers are well qualified and well trained before they start driving with the company. For riders, our app is easy to use. Just download, and a few taps will get you a ride in minutes, and as a bonus, you’ll be helping the KWC environment.”
