About Us

BestRides is the brainchild of an elite team of innovators, marketers, and developers in the Boston area.

When colleagues described having a frightening experience with a driver while traveling, we asked ourselves if we could create a simple and effective way to help travelers minimize the risks associated with such situations, or, ideally, avoid them altogether. We wanted to harness the power of social networks to create a real-time support system that would travel with them, albeit in a virtual sense, every step of the way until they arrived safely – whether by car or by foot. We then realized that we could combine that capability with “best price for your ride” data that allows users to travel more safely at the best possible price.

We are proud to say that our mobile app accomplishes both these objectives.
