Rideshare Red


Why Choose Rideshare Red?

I understand how hard it can be to get around without a vehicle. I also know first hand how expensive cabs and taxis can get. So I’ve decided to expand Red Conrad’s Wellness Alternatives™ services to include offering rides in and around the local area. After all, getting to work on time is important for financial health, doctors appointments on time for physical health, and so on. So I feel offering this service fits my business mission and vision.

Rides are not limited to work or doctors appointments. Need to go shopping (check out Red’s Delivery Services)? Visiting family/friends? Night out? Your vehicle getting worked on and you need a ride to/from the mechanic? Whatever your ride needs, I will get you where you need to go.

  • Airport (Departures and Arrivals) (Holiday Discounts automatically applied at pricing)
  • Shopping
  • Work (to and from)
  • Business meetings
  • Day/Night Out (safer than driving if you plan to consume alcohol)
  • Drop off / Pick up your car (from the mechanic or rental)
  • Doctor appointments (to and from)
  • Family/Friend get togethers and parties
  • Any ride for any reason!

Rideshare Red Ride Services

NOTICE: For the time being, I am ONLY doing LOCAL rides within Putnam County. Dropoffs outside Putnam County will be decided by distance. All pickups MUST be within Putnam County. Please use the Facebook pages booking feature, my RideConnect app channel (RedsRides), or the form below to schedule all rides in advance. Thank you
NOTE: At times I may have Fisher, my dog, with me. If my workday already started and I’m more than 5min from home, I will not drop him off. If you have dog allergies or prefer not to ride with him, don’t use my services. He is friendly and a small dog (pitbull/boxer/chihuahua mix). Best way to avoid a ride with Fisher, if you have allergies, is to request a ride in advance so I can be sure to leave him home or see if I have a driver working the day you need a ride.

Want affordable rides but don’t want to use Uber or Lyft? Use my services instead! My services are hosted on the RideConnect platform. Join me on RideConnect (*app download not required for service, see below note). My RideConnect Channel code is REDSRIDES. Get the app at http://just.rideconnect.it/now and then join my channel for easy ride scheduling, you can also get the app and join my channel directly by clicking here. Through RideConnect, I have my own network and service Putnam County and all surrounding counties. Or simply text 386-983-6415 (if you call, leave a voicemail; I do not answer calls during rides. I will call back soon as I can). To book a ride in advance in the app, you must be sure to use ‘schedule a ride’ or notification may time out, regular requests are only for rides within 5min from request.

My rate is $2/mile (ex: 20 miles = $40). If you’re going shopping and would like me to wait while you shop, there is an additional $15 wait fee for waits 10 minutes and longer; $15/hr waiting. NO surge pricing, NO games; fares are calculated on the flat per mile rate based on the shortest route. Fares do NOT go up based on route changes or time sitting in traffic (like Uber, Lyft, traditional taxis).

After hours rides have an additional $30 fee. Rides ending outside Putnam County have an additional $30 fee (not applicable to round-trip rides).

To calculate your own fare:

  1. Open Google Maps and put in your pickup and drop off locations
  2. Multiply the (shortest) distance/route by 2
    1. If your ride is roundtrip, multiply answer by 2
  3. If the fare is doable, message the Facebook page, use the Facebook page booking feature, or fill out the form below to book your ride.
  4. To pay for your ride in advance, use a payment option listed below or pay by Credit/Debit Card by clicking here.

If your shortest route shows a distance of 10 miles, you would do 10×2=20, so your fare would be $20 one way or $40 round-trip (not including any holiday fees or wait over 30min on a round-trip).

All scheduled fares must be paid at time of scheduling/booking ride or no later than 20 minutes prior to pickup. All other fares (on-demand) must be paid at time of accepting fare quote. For shopping and other trips that will clock wait time, cost of wait time may be paid at end of trip. See below for complete payment terms. 

No ride is too short or too long. Where ever it is you need to go, I will get you there. 

I accept payment via PayPal, Venmo, Cash App, Debit/Credit Card, Cash, Zelle, Chime, Varo, GoBank, Bakkt and GPay, and several crypto currencies, including Bitcoin, Bitcoin Gold, Bitcoin Cash, Dogecoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, USD Coin, Dash, Binance Coin, Stellar, Chainlink, and XRP. To pay in crypto, send an email to Red@RedConrad.com with the crypto you’d like to pay with and you’ll receive the QR code and address where to send payment. Discounted rates apply when using a payment app or Chime/Varo/GoBank (see below for details). Payment options are coming to the RideConnect app as well.

All pickups outside stated service area must pay a reservation fee of $30 plus fare. All reservation fees for services are to be paid upon accepting the ride before pickup, you may pay via PayPal at PayPal.me/RevDrRed, Credit/Debit Card, Zelle, Venmo, Chime, Varo or through the Cash App – $RedConrad.  Will not pickup without first having the reservation fee. There is also a $1.50/mile fee for all pickups outside the service area plus the $2/mile fare.

Booked rides take preference. Please book/schedule in advance. On-Demand rides will go smoother as I grow the team.
