Rideshare- To help get you around.

Jun 21, 2022

There are many forms of ridesharing. For example, most popular today are Lyft and Uber, for those unfamiliar it’s essentially an alternative taxi service. Ride sharing allows drivers who are going to a destination to take someone in need of a ride as well.

Ridesharing also has the unique ability to create a strong networking system, simply through sharing a ride together.

Rideshares have become more affordable than taking a cab, and way safer than hitchhiking! SkillUp would like to offer links and resources to workers who are in need of transportation to and from work, for now below is a list of ridesharing opportunities, if you don’t see your local region hang tight there’s more to come soon!
