Frequently asked questions
How do I get notified about rides?
The app will notify you a day in advance about available rides that you can accept. This gives you plenty of time to schedule your day around the rides you will be giving.
What if I can't give a ride?
You can accept or pass on a ride, depending on your availability. There is no penalty for passing on a ride.
How will I be paid?
We pay through direct deposit. Processed on Tuesday for the week before, and then deposited on Friday.
Where will I drive?
We do our best to keep you local. When you get a ride it shows you the pick up and drop off location. The final call to accept the ride is always yours.
Am I required to purchase any additional insurance to drive with Zūm?
It is not necessary to purchase any additional insurance, as Zūm covers every passenger in the vehicle up to $1 million.
Zūmers love us. We love them, too!
