How Nash Rides Works

After you’ve been approved to begin driving as a Nash Rides driver:

  • You will need to open the Nash Rides driver app when you’re ready to start accepting rides. Your username will be your e-mail address.
  • When a rider requests a ride, the driver closest to them automatically receives the trip request—so if that’s you, the notification will pop up on your app.
  • You’ll accept the trip and use the navigation to drive to the client’s pick-up location.
  • The app will charge the rider, so you won’t need to collect any fees during your drive. From time to time, riders will choose to pay via cash. Should this happen, company fees will be deducted from your next payroll.
  • When the ride is over, you and your rider will have the opportunity to rate one another.
  • Nash Rides will pay you through direct deposit.
    • Be sure to setup your banking information in your driver app.
    • Pay week runs from Mon 4am to Mon 4am.  Payout is Wednesday by noon.
