About LifeSocial Rideshare
LifeSocial Rideshare is evolving the way the world gets from A to B by seamlessly connecting drivers with empty seats to passengers looking for a ride through the use of our software and technology.
We've made cities more accessible, we've even made central coast taxi drivers lift their game and realise that there is viable competition. We're equally proud to have helped thousands see Byron Bay and other popular locations such as the Great Ocean Road.
It all started with Founder Dan Skill's issue of having to get to Port Macquarie and at the time not having access to a working vehicle.
Founder Dan Skill spotted an opportunity knowing that there were limited options available such as expensive Taxis (Sydney to Bathurst will cost you $800 in a taxi and so will a flight to Bali). Trains that are forever worsening in service and don't actually go to your destination, they only get you near. Buses that have a long route to follow before getting to your destination.
No one was offering any alternative solutions, and if there was they were a half hearted attempt to get something going.
LifeSocial Rideshare started in 2012 as a ground up design and is making travel social, money-saving and more efficient for it's members.
