By agreeing to these Terms of Service, and/or by accessing or utilizing any element of the TRYP Rides Platform, you are clearly acknowledging that you have a comprehensive understanding of this Agreement and accept all of the policies and terms within it. ALL USERS OF THE TRYP RIDES PLATFORM ARE REQUIRED TO AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS AGREEMENT.
Please review the following terms and conditions concerning your use of and access to the PLATFORM. By accessing, using and/or downloading any materials or content from the PLATFORM, you agree to follow and be bound by these terms and conditions (these “Terms” or this “Agreement”). If you do not agree with these Terms, you may not use the platform.
These Terms provide that all disputes between you and TRYP Rides will be resolved by BINDING ARBITRATION. ACCORDINGLY, YOU AGREE TO GIVE UP YOUR RIGHT TO GO TO COURT (INCLUDING IN A CLASS ACTION) to assert or defend your rights under these Terms (except for matters that may be taken to small claims court). Your rights will be determined by a NEUTRAL ARBITRATOR and NOT a judge or jury and your claims cannot be brought as a class action. Please review the Section below titled Dispute Resolution; Arbitration Agreement for the details regarding your agreement to arbitrate any disputes with TRYP Rides.
The creation and registration of any User account with the TRYP Rides Platform automatically dictates that you have read, understood, consent to, and agree to be bound by all of the terms and conditions within this Agreement. These Terms will hereby take the place of any prior arrangements or agreements made between us and you, and we reserve the right to terminate these Terms or any Services at any time and for any reason. NO USER SHALL BE ALLOWED TO ACCESS THE PLATFORM IF THEY DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS.
Additional terms may be applied to other Services and will be disclosed to you separately. All terms, whether written here or within connected supplemental agreements, will be considered a part of the overarching Terms associated with the Services and the Platform and any usage or provision concerning either or both. In the event that there is a conflict between two connecting agreements that fall under the general Terms, the language consented to and agreed upon within the additional terms and conditions shall prevail.
TRYP Rides can and will modify the terms and conditions of this Agreement at its sole discretion. Any additions or alterations to this Agreement will be made effective upon posting and notification of a posting to our Users. The “Last Updated Date” at the top of this Agreement may be the sole way in which we notify our Users of any updates to this Agreement. Your consent to this Agreement will be automatically received upon your continued usage of our Platform after the Agreement has been modified and such date has been changed. Any updates or changes that are deemed disagreeable to you as a User will render your usage or access of the Platform unacceptable.
Agreement to Binding Arbitration Between You and TRYP
Any and all claims, controversies, and/or disputes that are in any way connected to the terms and conditions laid out in this Agreement as well as any connecting agreements and/or your use of the Platform or Services shall be resolved via arbitration between you and TRYP Rides. You may not pursue action against TRYP Rides surrounding any of the above issues in a court of law.
You hereby understand and consent to the fact that you and TRYP Rides shall waive the right to a trial by jury or to participate in any representative or class action proceedings (either as a plaintiff or class member). All arbitration shall take place on an individual basis unless expressly agreed upon in writing by both you and TRYP Rides. Small claims court remains a valid venue in which either you or TRYP Rides may retain the right to bring individual action. The same rights are retained for the seeking of injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction regarding any issues involving intellectual property rights as laid out in the terms and conditions of this Agreement and all corresponding agreements.
Governing Law and Arbitration Rules
American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) Is the organization which shall administer all arbitration between you and TRYP Rides. This arbitration shall be performed according to the Consumer Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (“AAA Rules”) as laid out by the AAA, excluding those which have been explicitly modified by this Arbitration Agreement. You can find a listing of all AAA Rules at www.adr.org/arb_med or via their phone number: 1-800-778-7879.
All interpretations, applicability, enforceability or formation of this Arbitration Agreement (which may include any claim of this Agreement’s validity) shall fall under the sole authority of the AAA acting as the arbitrator (“Arbitrator’). The relinquishing of this authority to the AAA dissolves the prior authority any federal, state, or local court or agency regarding this arbitration or the issues tied to it. All threshold arbitrability issues, which may include issues relating to the unconscionable or illusory nature of these Terms of Us, shall be the sole responsibility of AAA, the Arbitrator. The issues in the previous statement also include any defense to arbitration which may include waiver, delay, laches, or estoppel.
Both parties hereby agree that the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. § 1 et seq. (“FAA”), will govern the interpretation and enforcement and any subsequent proceedings regarding said interpretation and enforcement due to the evidenced interstate transaction occurring as a result of this Arbitration Agreement. All state laws shall be preempted to the fullest legal extent by the FAA and AAA Rules as intended by both parties. The laws of the state of Nevada shall govern any issues that arise under this Arbitration Agreement which cannot be found within the FAA and AAA Rules.
A written Demand for Arbitration (as detailed in the AAA Rules) shall be required of any party who wishes to initiate arbitration and must be provided to the opposing party. You can find a form for the Demand for Arbitration at the Consumer Arbitration Rules section in www.adr.org or via phone at 1-800-778-7879. The Arbitrator provided by AAA may be one of the following: 1. An attorney that has as specific license to practice law in the state of Nevada and that is selected by both parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators; or 2. A retired judge. The AAA shall appoint an Arbitrator in accordance with AAA Rules if both parties cannot agree upon an Arbitrator within seven (7) days of the delivery of the Demand for Arbitration.
Location and Procedure
Arbitration shall occur within Las Vegas, Nevada. Unless you request a hearing or the Arbitrator deems that the arbitration requires a hearing, and if the claim does not exceed the limit of $10,000, then the arbitration will proceed based solely on the documents that TRYP Rides and you submit to the Arbitrator. For any claims exceeding $10,000, the AAA Rules will dictate your right to a hearing. It is up to the Arbitrator, operating within the bounds of the AAA Rules, to govern and manage an exchange of information by the parties that is reasonable and consistent with the accelerated purpose of said arbitration.
The AAA Rules specify a time frame within which the Arbitrator will determine an award. Any court that has competent jurisdiction to hold the judgement of the arbitration award may be valid. Injunctive or declaratory relief may be award by the Arbitrator if it is only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent that is deemed necessary for the relief that is warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. All decisions made by the Arbitrator shall be final and all parties involved shall be bound to said decisions. Therefore, there shall be no precedential or collateral estoppel effect of the Arbitrator’s decision or judgement. Attorneys’ fees and expenses shall be compensated to the prevailing party in an arbitration in accordance with applicable law. TRYP Rides waives any rights and shall not seek attorneys’ fees and expenses under the event that TRYP Rides may be the prevailing party during an arbitration.
Costs of Arbitration
The AAA Rules shall be solely responsible for setting forth any necessary fees that you are responsible to pay for any AAA filing, administrative, and/or arbitrator fees.
Modifications or Amendments
Severability and Survival
TRYP RIDES IS A FACILITATOR OF TRANSPORTATION SERVICES BETWEEN A DRIVER AND RIDER. WE ARE NOT A TRANSPORTATION SERVICE PROVIDER. WE ARE NOT A TRANSPORTATION CARRIER. EACH DRIVER DECIDES WHETHER THEY WANT TO ACCEPT A RIDE REQUEST ONCE THEY HAVE BEEN PLACED IN COMMUNICATION WITH A TRYP RIDER VIA OUR PLATFORM. EACH RIDER DECIDES WHETHER THEY WANT TO ACCEPT TRANSPORTATION FROM A DRIVER ONCE COMMUNICATION HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED BETWEEN THEM VIA OUR PLATFORM. IT IS UP TO THE USER TO DECIDE TO ACCEPT OR OFFER ANY SERVICES INVOLVING THE TRYP RIDES PLATFORM. EVERY RIDE OFFERED OR ACCEPTED BY EITHER USER PARTY SHALL BE DEEMED A SEPARATE AGREEMENT BETWEEN THESE TWO OR MORE USERS.

Payments and Refunds
TRYP Rides will assist you in establishing your own merchant account that will process all payments due to you. As a Driver, you will receive 100% of the Base Fare as determined by the current Compensation Plan and any tips provided by Riders to you for the Services you provide. You acknowledge and agree that such amounts shall not include any interest and will be net of any amounts that we are required to withhold by law. TRYP Rides works hard to ensure that legitimate Riders are matched with legitimate Drivers. Fraud and abuse do take place by both Drivers and Riders and TRYP Rides will attempt to investigate any claim of fraud or abuse. Although TRYP Rides takes steps, such as pre-authorization and pre-checking the validity of a Rider’s credit card, there is no guarantee that a Rider’s payment will be successfully made and therefore you bear the risk of not receiving the payment, not TRYP Rides. Where a Driver has given a successful ride to a Rider, but the Rider’s payment is not made for some reason, TRYP Rides will immediately investigate. If TRYP Rides determines that its assessment and screening were insufficient to protect the Driver, then TRYP Rides will cover the payment to the Driver. Likewise, if a Rider makes a payment to a Driver but the Rider did not receive the Services as intended, TRYP Rides will investigate and has the discretion to refund the fare or credit the account of Riders for a ride. If we refund the fare or credit a Rider account for a ride you provided, you will not be paid for the portion of the ride that was refunded or credited. If you have already received payment for a refunded/credited ride, TRYP Rides has the right to seek immediate repayment from you. TRYP Rides’ third-party payment processor maintains statistics on chargebacks. Should the Driver exceed reasonable or acceptable chargeback ratios, your merchant account could be suspended or terminated by the merchant account provider.
As a Rider, you agree to pay TRYP Rides, and permit TRYP Rides to retain, a fee (the “Booking Fee”) based on each transaction in which you utilize any of TRYP Ride’s Services. The amount of the applicable Booking Fee will be communicated in a Booking Fee schedule. TRYP Rides reserves the right to change the Booking Fee at any time at TRYP Ride’s discretion based upon local market factors. Changing the Booking Fee in the Booking Fee schedule will constitute notice in the event of such change. Continued use of the TRYP Rides Platform after any such change in the Booking Fee calculation shall constitute your consent to such change.
Certain trips and fare destination or pickup require the payment of fees and/or tolls (i.e. airport fees). To the extent that these fees/tolls are paid by the Rider, the Driver acknowledges that these receipts will be retained by TRYP Rides for payment to the appropriate legal authority.
Damages and Maintenance
Users are solely responsible for any costs associated with the damage, maintenance, and/or loss of any and all property (including vehicles) that may fall under the umbrella of the Services, the Platform, or under your User account.
