  • Publication number: 20190318443
    Abstract: A method of operating a transportation service includes calculating a trip route for a trip request from a commuter, and transmitting a pick-up instruction to a transporting vehicle. A ride rebate option is communicated to the commuter, who may opt to execute it. The ride rebate option may include an option to purchase goods from a third-party provider, provide data to the third-party provider, complete a survey, or promote the third-party provider on social media. The third-party provider is notified when the commuter opts to execute the ride rebate option. Upon confirmation by the third-party provider that the commuter has executed the ride rebate option, a payment amount is transferred from the third-party provider to the transportation service. A fee charged to the commuter by the transportation service is reduced by the payment amount transferred to the transportation service from the third-party provider.
