The rideshare industry is growing with an influx of new entrants offering services that aim to simplify traveling and also provide drivers with diversified means of earning. One major aspect of ridesharing is its impact on the lives of people. Rideshare is fostering the spirit of entrepreneurship and also improving quality of living. Driving, especially in busy cities can take a toll as you have to deal with traffic and impatient drivers.
Uber, the rideshare behemoth is a pioneer in the industry and its business model has been emulated by many startup companies. Now, the Government of Yukon has partnered with the City of Whitehorse to launch “a new ride-sharing program that improves access to commuting options for city residents” called Yukon Rideshare.

Users who share the same schedules are matched with each other using their departure and destination locations.
