Shared cost trip

This is when a number of passengers separately request a ride to the same destination or different destinations as part of the same trip organized or coordinated through a digital platform or electronic system that allowed each passenger to consent in writing in advance to share the cost of the trip.

You must produce and send a bill for each passenger.

Note
  • The “Tarif application” item and the “Partage” detail must appear on each bill.
  • The transactions must contain a reference to each bill produced for the same trip. For example, for a trip whose cost is shared by three passengers, the first transaction must not include a reference, the second transaction must include a reference to the first bill and the third transaction must include references to the first and second bill
