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.
We require our Care Partners to be 25 years of age or older and have a vehicle that is ten years or newer with four doors and easy to access. We also require our applicants to successfully pass several layers of background checks, an online orientation, in-person interview and a car inspection. Lastly, we conduct random drug screenings of our Care Partners.
While we are excited to accept applications from anyone meeting these requirements, we are actively seeking Care Partners that are:
CPR or First Aid training
Nurses, Nursing students, Nurse Aids
Active and Retired EMTs, Paramedics, Firefighters and Law Enforcement
Members of AARP

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 create their profile in the 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 and training, a background investigation, car inspection and test ride. The on-boarding process takes approximately five days.
I have been added to the Care Partner Queue; what is that?
We are committed to creating a network of drivers based solely on demand. We want every Care Partner to have the opportunity to work as much as they like. Care Partners in the queue are the next in line to be verified and on-boarded. We advance Care Partners out of the queue as our job availability increases. It is likely you will not be in the queue long as our job demand is increasing quickly.
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.The Care Partner can then 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?
95% of our jobs are booked in advance and occur during the day between 7:00 am - 9:00 pm. Care Partner's can accept these jobs in advance and plan out their week.
