Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What is Tease N Drive?
Tease N Drive is a ride sharing website that connects car owners with people who need rides to cities, towns or places in Nigeria. This includes going to work or social events as well as traveling across the country. Tease N Drive provides a safe and secure platform for car owners to share their fuel costs. Tease N Drive provides verification levels to enhance safety of users on the platform. Instead of picking random passengers or joining random car owners on the road, the platform provides both drivers and passengers a safe platform to accept offers from our verified users.
What is ridesharing?
Ridesharing is when several people travel together by car and share the cost of the journey. You have most likely experienced ride sharing once in a while: anytime you take the car together with friends or family either going to work, school, and social event or traveling across the country. This helps to save cost for all parties involved. In much the same way, Tease N Drive connects car owners and co-travelers to share city-to-city or within city journeys, so that they can both save money.
Although Tease N Drive services involve facilitation of ride sharing, Tease N Drive does not encourage car-owners to earn rewards through any other charges. Tease N Drive calculates a recommended price for every journey, although the driver can quote less or high but must not exceed a particular limit, as the platform is not for commercial purpose but for car owners to receive reimbursement to the extent of their running costs.
What do I stand to gain using Tease N Drive platform?
For passengers, ridesharing is a cheap and convenient travel option. For car owners, ridesharing helps offset really high vehicle costs.
But aside from the purely economic aspect, sharing a car is also environmentally friendly. Instead of using a car as an individual, ride sharing will help to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as well as help to reduce the traffic gridlocks encountered in major cities of the country like Lagos, thereby reducing the impact of infrastructural degradation; less car on the road means less damage to our roads, less exhaust emissions and less traffic. So by sharing your ride, you are helping to solve environmental pollution as well as preserve our ailing infrastructure.
