The app will notify you a day in advance about available rides that you can accept. This gives you plenty of time to schedule your day around the rides you will be giving.

You can accept or pass on a ride, depending on your availability. There is no penalty for passing on a ride.

We pay through direct deposit. Processed on Tuesday for the week before, and then deposited on Friday.

We do our best to keep you local. When you get a ride it shows you the pick up and drop off location. The final call to accept the ride is always yours.

It is not necessary to purchase any additional insurance, as Zūm covers every passenger in the vehicle up to $1 million.
