InstaRyde uses WePay for our payment gateway. When drivers sign up with InstaRyde, they receive an email to register with WePay. All payments are directly deposited into your bank account via WePay. You can choose daily, weekly or monthly payments.

InstaRyde takes $0.99 per ride* from our drivers. Our fees are significantly less than many of the other competing platforms.

*Driver payout is dependent on payment processing fees and trip distance, and may vary by city.


Our rider fees are typically cheaper than other platforms such as Uber. We also don’t use surge pricing. You pay the same fare at any time of day.
1. Download the InstaRyde app and create an account.
2. Enter your pick-up location, choose your vehicle type and request a ride.
3. Track your ride. Track your vehicle in real-time as it comes to pick you up.
You can certainly bring luggage. We ask that you do not bring pets (except service animals).
