Scoop is not a traditional ridesharing company (often called Transportation Network Carrier, or “TNC”). Drivers of traditional TNC’s profit from their trips which can void personal auto insurance policies without a commercial rider or endorsement. Scoop is not a TNC and does not hire drivers. Scoop instead match carpoolers on their way to and from work, and the payments to drivers carpooling with Scoop are being reimbursed from riders as of portion of their commuting cost. Carpooling with Scoop should be treated the same way carpooling would be treated without Scoop, which does not void traditional auto insurance. We recommend that drivers confirm with their chosen auto insurance carrier that their coverage plan is sufficient to meet our Terms of Service.
