Ryde believes in the importance of being involved in the local community and part of that stems from giving back to our drivers and their families.
In recognition of the drivers who spend most of their time away from their loved ones to serve our local community, Ryde is offering Study Awards that will support our drivers in their children’s educational expenses.
In doing so, we hope to foster youths of tomorrow who have a passion for creating a sustainable future through technology, and are game changers who aspire to digitize and transform the cities we live in.
