The Safe Rideshare Program was developed as the final capstone project of an Occupational Therapy Doctoral student at Virginia Commonwealth University. This site is intended to increase awareness and knowledge of what rideshare is and how to use it safely. On its own, it is not sufficient to ensure an individual can take rideshare safely or transfer their knowledge to performance in real-world situations. The Safe Rideshare Program, its creators, and Virginia Commonwealth University are not responsible for any negative experiences or personal harm that results from using rideshare.
