LGBTQ+ride: Safe and Inclusive Transportation for the LGBTQ+ Community, Disabled, and Allies

Rides Are Currently Available In Los Angeles, West Hollywood, and Orange County

By Dolores Quintana

LGBTQ+ride is a new ridesharing app that started service in June and has pledged to provide safe, friendly, and non-discriminatory rides for LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, and allies, as ABC 7.com reported. The founders, Stephen Ridl and Robert Tanner are from Palm Springs and saw a need for a ride-share app that was LGBTQ+ friendly after watching a friend be refused a ride after a drag show in Palm Springs. 

Stephen Ridl said, as reported by ABC 7, They just saw me and pulled away from me, and now I don’t have a ride,’ after Ridl and Tanner saw a rideshare car pull away from one of their friends and then they asked what happened. 

Their website stresses inclusivity, being welcoming to everyone, and creating a work environment for their drivers that would be empowering and embraces diversity. They would like to support the individual’s need to be themselves without worrying about being judged or worried about how they will be perceived. Pets are also welcome at LGBTQ+ride.

The app is available in the app stores, and rides are now available in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, West Hollywood, San Francisco, San Diego, Orange County, Sacramento, and surrounding areas. They also pride themselves on offering rides in luxury vehicles for comfort and safety.
