The lack of transport options available in rural areas means teenagers’ mobility is limited. WeRide, a community-based ride-sharing service, aims to improve this situation. Through its app, WeRide matches teenagers who need a ride with drivers who are willing to offer one. What is special about WeRide is that it uses existing networks such as schools, village structures, etc. to establish trust among its users. WeRide is supported by public institutions at state and district level and the respective public transport authorities.
