  • Transparency – We are open-minded in what we do. We have candor and share our experiences openly without fear of judgment. We love feedback on our product and on our own personal performance so that we can improve every day.
  • Safety – if we don’t care about safety ourselves, then how can we change our industry for the better?
  • Trust – we expect customers to trust our drivers and entrepreneurs, so we need to trust one another in everything we do.
  • Integrity – We hold ourselves to the highest standard and we are accountable for our actions. We deliver what we say we will deliver.
  • Collective Commitment – teams and entrepreneurs are allowed to disagree while a decision is being made; however, everybody must commit to it once a decision has been made. “I agree and I commit, I disagree and I commit”.
