Membership in Fare Co-op/Local Driver Co-op

We thank the many thousands of drivers, delivery couriers and livery drivers who joined Fare Co-op/Local Driver Co-op in the last few years from all over the USA, Canada, UK, Australia, and many other countries.

Fare Co-op/Local Driver Co-op is now accepting members from all cities in the USA and Canada, including ride-share and delivery, as well as taxi, black, limo and livery car drivers (with a valid commercial insurance and permit) for a one-time membership fee of $100 (or 4 monthly payments of $30). This lifetime membership grants you access to our ride booking app (Fare) and our delivery app (FareEats), where you receive 90% of all fares and delivery fees. In addition, membership in Fare Co-op/Local Driver Co-op gets you an equal share in the co-op (you will receive a co-op share certificate) and equal voting rights, allowing you, the drivers, to determine the future policies of our co-op. You will also enjoy member savings programs on popular products (with discounts on fuel, auto parts, auto/business supplies and much more), member benefits and services, negotiated by our co-op thanks to our collective buying power.

What is a Cooperative?

A cooperative is an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social, and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly-owned and democratically-controlled enterprise.

Cooperatives are based on the values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity, and solidarity. In the tradition of their founders, cooperative members believe in the ethical values of honesty, openness, social responsibility and caring for others.

Cooperative Principles

The cooperative principles are guidelines by which cooperatives put their values into practice.

1. Voluntary and Open Membership

Cooperatives are voluntary organizations, open to all persons able to use their services and willing to accept the responsibilities of membership, without gender, social, racial, political or religious discrimination.

2. Democratic Member Control

Cooperatives are democratic organizations controlled by their members, who actively participate in setting their policies and making decisions. Men and women serving as elected representatives are accountable to the membership. In primary cooperatives members have equal voting rights (one member, one vote) and cooperatives at other levels are also organized in a democratic manner.

3. Member Economic Participation

Members contribute equitably to, and democratically control, the capital of their cooperative. At least part of that capital is usually the common property of the cooperative. Members usually receive limited compensation, if any, on capital subscribed as a condition of membership. Members allocate surpluses for any or all of the following purposes: developing their cooperative, possibly by setting up reserves, part of which at least would be indivisible; benefiting members in proportion to their transactions with the cooperative; and supporting other activities approved by the membership.

4. Autonomy and Independence

Cooperatives are autonomous, self-help organizations controlled by their members. If they enter into agreements with other organizations, including governments, or raise capital from external sources, they do so on terms that ensure democratic control by their members and maintain their cooperative autonomy.

5. Education, Training, and Information

Cooperatives provide education and training for their members, elected representatives, managers, and employees so they can contribute effectively to the development of their co-operatives. They inform the general public – particularly young people and opinion leaders – about the nature and benefits of co-operation.

6. Cooperation among Cooperatives

Cooperatives serve their members most effectively and strengthen the cooperative movement by working together through local, national, regional and international structures.

7. Concern for Community

Cooperatives work for the sustainable development of their communities through policies approved by their members.


Membership in Fare Co-op/Local Driver Co-op

Membership in our co-op comes with shares and each driver gets 1 share. The value of your share will increase over time as our membership grows and we generate more revenue, so if at any point you decide to stop driving, retire and leave the co-op, you will receive a full return on your investment.

As we cap the number of drivers in each city, once our membership in a city reaches its maximum capacity, a new member will only be accepted once an existing co-op member leaves.
