Scoop does not carry the same risk of voiding auto insurance as traditional ridesharing companies. The simple explanation is that drivers of traditional rideshare companies profit from their trips which can void auto insurance policies. However, Scoop is not a TNC (Transportation Network Carrier) and we do not pay a 'Fee' but instead, a reimbursement of a commuter's cost. Our team has worked hard with legal experts and regulatory bodies to provide clarity on how using Scoop would be viewed from a tax and employment perspective. It has been determined that the reimbursement amount drivers receive through Scoop is consistent with the allowable limits imposed by the IRS for a company of our type. Therefore, carpooling with Scoop legally is treated the same way carpooling would be with no app, which does not void traditional auto insurance.
