The Jayride Challenge, sponsored by Ace Rental Cars
Jayride is taking to the road to prove ridesharing can work for New Zealanders!
Rod Bishop, cofounder of Jayride will take a compact car from Auckland to Queenstown, departing Auckland on 26 January. Jayride will carpool to iconic New Zealand destinations, using every means to find passengers – meeting locals, backpackers and business people, blogging and listing rides on Jayride.co.nz
“If Jayride makes it from Auckland to Queenstown filling spare seats for the whole trip it will show ride-sharing works by proving that kiwis can share any ride they want, whenever they want,” says Rod Bishop.
We also aim to remind kiwis of the great destinations on their doorstep. In tight financial times domestic travel is a cost-saving alternative to overseas holidays, especially when New Zealand’s greatest destinations are now cheaper than ever to reach with Jayride.
The Jayride rideshare road-trip challenge will be blogged straight from the road to you at news.jayride.co.nz. Will we make it? Is ridesharing feasible in New Zealand? We certainly believe so and we’re going to try and prove it!
