Riders with Children

A rider must be at least 18 years old to register and request rides. If a rider is under the age of 18, he or she must be accompanied by someone who is 18 years of age or older.

If a rider opts to bring a child with them on their trip, be mindful of the Ontario Highway Traffic Act requirements. Ontario's Highway Traffic Act requires children to use a booster seat if they:

  • Weigh 18 kg to 36 kg (40 to 80 lb)
  • Are shorter in height than 145 cm (4 ft 9 in) tall
  • and who are under the age of 8

The laws apply to persons driving in Ontario, whether it is a personal or a ride-sharing vehicle. The parent or caregiver should provide you with the proper car seat or booster seat. If none is provided to you, we ask that you politely cancel the trip and leave a comment letting us know why.

Drivers should decline the ride request if they see that the person requesting the ride is under 18. When picking up riders, if you feel they are underage, you may request they provide a driver's license or ID card for confirmation.

Note: If a rider is underage, please do not start the trip or allow them to ride.
