About Us

Who We Are

Founded by Bob and Anne Carr, we believe that every person deserves the right to mobility. Millions of people in the US are confined at home because they cannot drive. The modern age has offered many potential solutions to this problem, but large portions of the population are left without access to new technology. We have teamed up with Lyft and Uber to expand mobility to all who desire it. 


How it Works

At Common Courtesy, we bridge the gap between our riders and Popular Ride-Share providers, Lyft and Uber, as proven ride sharing services. Our users call us to schedule a ride, and we schedule a driver to pick them up at their desired time and place. We then coordinate the ride by alerting the Uber driver of who to pick up, and then we call our rider once the driver has arrived. We ensure that the trip goes smoothly by tracking our rider's trip and calling them once the trip has concluded. 



We offer several options to fund riders. There are two primary types of accounts: Chapters and Joy Rider Accounts. Chapter accounts are created by organizations wishing to provide transpiration to all of their members, for example a church group could create a fund only available for their members. The organization provides the initial funds that are in their account used to give their members rides and then the organization or other donors can donate money to chapter accounts. A Joy Rider account is opened to be used by one specific person. Similarly to chapter accounts, others can contribute money to the Joy Rider accounts.
