Drivers

Be Prepared

  • Review any special pickup and/or dropoff instructions for the ride

  • Set your navigation BEFORE you depart from the pickup location

 

Drive Carefully & Obey All Traffic Laws

  • Always keep your eyes on the road

  • Never talk or text on your mobile phone at any time during the ride

  • Pull over to a safe location if it is necessary

  • Avoid any situations that puts your passengers at risk

Do not allow any unapproved riders in the vehicle (only Boomerang passengers with a Boomerang profile may be on rides).

 

Do not drop a passenger off anywhere other than the pre-arranged destination.

 

Do not leave a drop-off destination until the passenger is safely inside and they wave to indicate that he or she is ready for you to leave.

 

Communicate pick-up and drop-offs promptly so parents have peace of mind.

Riders

Be Prompt

  • Please be ready a few minutes before your scheduled pick up time

Be Sensible: Only get in the car if:

  • Driver matches his or her photo and is wearing a Boomerang t-shirt 

  • Car matches the photo and you see the Boomerang decal.  

  • Your Driver must also share your Secret Code word.

 

Trust your instincts. If you feel unsafe, tell you Driver and parents right away.

Respect your Driver and fellow Riders:

  • Allow your Driver to strap you into your booster/seat

  • Stay strapped in during the ride

  • No yelling, rough-housing, or other behavior that may distract the Driver

  • Don’t insult, bully, or harass anybody in the car

  • Keep your hands to yourself and be nice to everyone

  • Allow your Driver to unbuckle you and/or help you out of the vehicle

  • When you get to your destination, go directly to where you’re supposed to be.
