"Common Courtesy works to maximize the quality of life for anyone who has limited personal transportation options. Clients can catch a ride from Common Courtesy via Uber to go to doctors’ appointments, grocery stores and the pharmacy. The service can even accommodate for personal trips such as attending church, the movies or a routine visit to a hairdresser."
"About two years ago, semi-retired business executive Bob Carr thought he’d spend some time driving for Uber, the innovative company that allows individuals to use their own vehicles to transport paying passengers. Little did Carr know that the journey would take him to a whole new career."
"Eventually Carr was able to build a formal partnership with Uber. He worked with their engineers in Atlanta to create a system where his ride-sharing organization, by then called Common Courtesy, acts as an intermediary, registering each of their riders with a unique rider ID. Riders are sponsored by “chapters” that raise money to fund their rides; they run the gamut from local churches that want to ensure their congregates can remain mobile, to senior living facilities, adult daycare organizations and audiology or dental offices."
