Those who haven’t yet tried Richmond MOVES can get their first 10 rides free until Sept. 30, according to the Richmond City Manager’s Office.

Richmond MOVES is described as a low-cost Uber that provides participants with safe, convenient transportation in Richmond, including the Richmond and El Cerrito BART stations, the ferry, parks and more. It’s like a shared shuttle that comes when and where you want and is booked from your phone. You’ll get picked up in minutes, and access local transit without needing a car.

Participants are asked to meet at a nearby corner instead of right outside the address you entered. Wheelchair accessible vehicles (WAV) are also available, which can be requested by toggling the wheelchair icon in the app or calling (510) 937-3657 to schedule a ride.

The service runs Monday through Friday 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and rides cost $2 each, students
and seniors ride for free. Richmond MOVES is sponsored by the CALSTART Clean Mobility Options Voucher program.
