Local Rides

[Available in Florida ONLY]

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 Reds 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!

With me, you have options. Two separate fares to choose from, one ride. Because I’m partnered with Lyft, as well as provide my own services, you can compare the fares and choose which to pay! Then get a ride from me using that service. Simple. If you prefer Lyft, we  will both login to the app at the same time at pickup – at pickup you request the ride and I accept it on my end and begin the trip through Lyft. Alternatively, you could use my personal service and pay in a number of ways. If you like the idea of using an app to hail rides, my service is also hosted on an app similar to Uber, and Lyft. More info below.
(Inside Putnam County, only my services are available through me. I only provide Lyft services inter-county; Putnam to another county or other county to Putnam)

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

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).

My rate is $1.50/mile (ex: 20 miles = $30). If you’re going shopping and would like me to wait while you shop, there is an additional $10 wait fee for waits 30min and longer; $10/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).

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 1.5
    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.

If your shortest route shows a distance of 10 miles, you would do 10×1.5=15, so your fare would be $15 one way or $30 round-trip (not including any holiday fees or wait over 30min on a round-trip).

All scheduled fares must be paid at pickup or at time of scheduling/booking ride. 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, and GPay. (I carry a mobile card reader so you may pay with your card at pickup.) Discounted rates apply when using a payment app or Chime/Varo (see below for details). Payment options are coming to the RideConnect app as well.

All pickups outside my 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 or Credit/Debit at PayPal.me/RevDrRed, Zelle, Venmo, Chime, Varo or through the Cash App – $RedConrad.  Will not pickup without first having the reservation fee. There is also a $1/mile fee for all pickups outside the service area plus the $1.50/mile fare.

Booked rides take preference. At the moment Rideshare Red is a one driver operation. Please book/schedule in advance. On-Demand rides will go smoother as I grow the team.

Service Info And Area

I’m partnered with Lyft, as well as provide my own rideshare services. All rides through Lyft must be paid through the app. If you prefer not to use Lyft, you may opt to use my service instead. If you need a ride during my service hours, and are getting a message that there are no drivers nearby (Lyft), send a text to 386-983-6415 (if you call, leave a voicemail; I do not answer calls during rides. I will call back soon as I can) or message the Facebook page; we’ll then connect in the app when I arrive before the trip begins. You may also text or message me to schedule a pickup at a set time. If you prefer not to use Lyft, you may use my services

Note: I only do Lyft heading out of Putnam County or coming into Putnam County. All rides where pickup and drop off are both inside Putnam County, you must use my RideConnect service.

If you don’t have the Lyft app, use code TripsWithRed when you download and setup your account to save $5 Off a Lyft ride. (Our service/market area is through Jacksonville. It doesn’t matter what county you’re in, the market is Jacksonville. Don’t get discouraged when you see Jacksonville when signing up)

If you use my services for rides to/from work, I will  make your rides priority; but you must schedule ahead of time. 

  • Sunday-Saturday 7am-10pm (Please book ride as far ahead of time as possible. The other drivers and I could be anywhere in the service area at any time. The more time we have to get to you, the better.)
  • Holidays I will work most holidays. The following holidays are only through my personal service, and are fare plus $5 fee. To get rides on below holidays, they must be scheduled a minimum of 7 days in advance:
    • Easter
    • Thanksgiving
    • Christmas

I’m based in Crescent City, and service (accept rides) throughout (Rideshare Red RideConnect service area):

  • Putnam County,
  • Alachua County,
  • Bradford County,
  • Clay County,
  • Saint John’s County,
  • Flagler County,
  • Volusia County,
  • Marion County,
  • Duval County

Destinations (drop-offs) may be to a county outside this area. Ride pickups outside this area I ask for a $30 tip added to the Lyft fare or $30 reservation fee (if using my RideConnect service) for scheduled pickups sent to PayPal.me/RevDrRed (may use Credit/Debit; PayPal account not required*), Chime, Varo, Zelle, or Cash App – $RedConrad. Chime, Varo, Zelle reservations fees/payments are to be sent to Red@RedConrad.com

Pricing/Cost: Rideshare Red Services are calculated from ‘Point A’ (pickup location) to ‘Point B’ (drop-off location) multiplied by the rate (as shown in the examples above). Rideshare Red is a Ride Service similar to Uber/Lyft/Taxi’s, NOT a carpool. 

Reservation fees are non-refundable. Please be sure I accept your out-of-area pickup before sending me the reservation fee. Sending me the out-of-area fee will not lock me in. I MUST accept to be locked in. I factor in time, day, and other riders before accepting or denying out-of-area pickups. Wait for me to accept before sending the fee or you will lose the fee.
*To pay via PayPal with your Debit/Credit Card instead of a PayPal account, you must let me know that’s the method you’d like to do. I will then send you an invoice through PayPal payable via Debit/Credit Card.
