TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Facedrive Inc. (“Facedrive”), the first Canadian peer-to-peer ridesharing network, becomes a contributing sponsor and rideshare partner of The Canadian National Exhibition (CNE), Canada’s largest community event and one of the top agricultural fairs in North America. Every ride taken with Facedrive contributes towards reducing the carbon footprint in the environment and tree planting – Through this valued partnership, Facedrive will also help the CNE enhance its ‘Green Initiatives’. Each ride guarantees a tree is planted in the City of Toronto, and riders can track the number of trees planted through the Facedrive App.
Facedrive will have its own dedicated pick-up and drop-off area as well as two additional footprints on the CNE grounds for all 18 days. Thousands of attendees will travel safely and quickly, to and from the fair, with five dollars discounted off all rides everyday. During the CNE, riders can also access further discounts using a special promo code to travel to/from the fair. Visitors who choose Facedrive will have an easy ride booking experience and can also plan ahead and schedule their ride in advance, avoiding longer transit commutes through the weekend and avoid paying extra for limited parking due to construction on the CNE grounds.
Chairman of Facedrive, Sayan Navaratnam, adds, “Our drivers work hard to provide excellent service to all their riders. Our sponsorship of the CNE is one of our ways of giving back to the City that helped build Facedrive. Everyone who takes a ride with Facedrive and/or visits our booth at the CNE will be eligible to win exciting prizes. We look forward to the many smiles from riders as they enjoy one of the greatest events of the summer.”
