Hi, Jesper here. I have been rideshare driving for almost 3 years, mostly as a weekend warrior driving primarily Friday and Saturday evenings.

About 1.5 years ago I almost quit!

Below is a list of items that we feel are important for rideshare drivers to keep in their cars while out driving. Having these items will help you clean up your car fast when you have an incident, and get you back out on the road earning money.

Hi All, Jesper here. So we are called the GR Rideshare Adventures after all, so I figured I would share 2 adventures from my nights in GR.

Enjoy and stay Safe!

Last spring, I picked up a very inebriated college student from downtown Grand Rapids. He needed to get back to Grand Valley State University student housing in Allendale. When I stopped to pick him up, it took him awhile to find me, and even longer to get into my vehicle.
