We’ve made TangoRide for everyone, so you can carpool as a passenger or as the driver. Better still, you can change at any time to be a passenger or a driver. So you may drive through the working week and carpool passengers, and on the weekends you can request a ride as a passenger.
TangoRide always begins with drivers heading to their destination and offering to share a ride. Passengers are matched to a driver’s offer, because their pickup and drop-off location is within a short distance from the route the driver is taking.
For example, maybe a driver name David, is heading to work in the morning. Before David leaves he offers a ride through the TangoRide app. In the same neighbourhood, a passenger named Mary wants a lift to work and has requested a ride through the app. Because David will drive very close to Mary’s home and also very close to where she works, the app informs both users they are a match. The app guides David to pickup Mary at her home and where she needs to be dropped off. David continues driving to his workplace.
Whether you want to be a driver, passenger or both, you’ll find the TangoRide is a feature rich single app.
Carpooling should be flexible for your travel plans. That’s why TangoRide features three different ways you can start a trip to improve matching options. You can plan ahead by scheduling a ride/trip for later, or you can setup your routine trips for the week, or you can send a request for a ride when you want. TangoRide will work in realtime to look for a matching driver or passenger and continue to do so until the driver arrives at their destination.

Carpooling is when car owners and passengers are sharing the journey towards the same destination. Unlike hail ride or taxis, passengers are not paying for the drivers time and effort, they are only sharing the cost of the journey.
* Values were obtained in September 2019 via thetrainline.com, uber.com, TangoRide (app). Actual fares of this trip may vary. You must agree to pay the fare shown upon verifying your ride request.

TangoRide is now available in different regions of the UK including Aberdeen, Birmingham, Leicester, Milton Keynes and Northampton, while also being launched in the Isle of Man, Isle of Wight, Jersey and Guernsey. Stay tune as we announce more regions and countries soon.
We don’t like to stand still, we constantly look at ways to improve the experience of our app and the service, and deliver frequent updates to the app for Android and iOS. Our users are very important to us and we welcome all feedback to make TangoRide the best carpool/ride share platform available.
We understand sharing a ride in the real world can raise concerns by users trusting other users and we have designed our app to provide choices and information to give users more confidence in carpooling.
Specifically, we verify our users with an ID document (UK Drivers Licence and Passport), facial recognition, mobile number and email. From this base point, each user has the opportunity to identify the other as the correct driver or passenger for their trip.
In the digital world, TangoRide constantly tests and develops new app updates to mitigate security vulnerabilities. The attention to security also extends to user data and payment information, using only the best in the industry
TangoRide is about providing an alternative transport option for all people. In an ever increasing population, our roads become congested and our public transport services feel the strain. The growth and demand for these methods of transport will need to be sustained, so we can travel more efficiently, reduce the increase of vehicle emissions and decrease the demand for new infrastructure.
Carpooling offers a viable and immediate solution to sustainable transport. The advantages are many, starting with having fewer cars on the road that results in a decrease in road congestion that assists traffic flow, while also reducing vehicle emissions.
Think of how many people drive cars today with no passengers. In the UK alone it is over 10 million. This resource has barely been tapped into and is the focus of TangoRide. We want to actively change the single-car occupancy culture, by incentivising the car owners to carpool and connect them with passengers who are travelling in the same direction.
Through our model of incentivising single car occupancy owners to share a ride, along with using the very latest mobile app technology to provide passengers convenience and safety, we strongly believe TangoRide is a viable and cost-effective sustainable transport solution.
Most often we forget there is a community of people around us. Research suggests when you are more involved with your community, the greater your wellbeing and feeling of belonging.
Carpooling with TangoRide connects people in the community, by introducing people that live close by to one another. And because it is a shared form of transport, the driver and passenger are in a mutual travelling arrangement that benefits them both and thereby they can assume a natural relationship. This gives way to the possibility and our goal, that TangoRide will assist in fostering strong enough carpooling relationships for it to eventually not be required.
MAKING A PAYMENT
Review – Acccept – Pay – Jump in car – Go!
When a trip is matched between the driver and passenger, the passenger will have the opportunity to review the total fare before the trip is accepted. The trip fare is locked and cannot be altered, and is paid just prior to the passenger jumping into the car to begin the trip.
When a passenger is registered to use TangoRide, they will have the opportunity to save their credit card details. Registered drivers will also have the opportunity to save their banking details.
