“Goober” is defined as the legal entity known as Get A Goober, LLC and reserves all rights applicable to a Florida Limited Liability Company, as established by Florida law.
“Rider” is defined as the requesting individual and/or accompanying party, which is treated as an agent of the rider. Riders acknowledges and agree to all Terms and Conditions as outlined in this document for themselves and on behalf of all riders included in the group. Riders agree that they are 18 years of age or older, or will be accompanied by a member of the accompanying party on every trip that is 18 years of age or older.
“Driver” is defined as the operator of a Goober vehicle. Drivers are employees of Goober and as such, are fully licensed, insured, and have completed required background checks in order to operate Goober Vehicles. Drivers are responsible for the accurate and total completion of a Rider’s Trip, and have dedicated access to the Driver platform used by Goober in order to communicate and complete Rider’s requested contract. Drivers have the ability to end a Trip for any reason if a Rider or accompanying party violate safety precautions within a Goober vehicle, or at any time during or before the commencement of a Trip at their discretion.
“Trip” is defined as a short-term transportation contract between the Rider and the accompanying party and Goober. A contract begins when each individual ride request is submitted by Rider. This contract and all accompanying liability and responsibility of Goober ends when the ride is completed by Driver or Rider, whether or not a ride reaches the original destination, an altered destination, or is ended early for any reason.
“Fare Estimation” is defined as the current pricing structure implemented by Goober, which is outlined in this document and is subject to change at the discretion of Goober. Fare Estimation is provided to the rider upon request of each individual ride. Fare Estimation is inclusive of Cart Fee and Ride Rate. Ride Rate will be outlined and provided via the Goober Mobile Application at the booking of each ride request. Rider’s acceptance of the Fare Estimation is treated as agreement by the Rider for the rate as outlined at the time of request. Actual charged fare is based on the physical drop off location and may be subject to a reduction in, or increase of charges. This term can be used in place of and is intended to mean the same thing as “Trip Charge” or anything similar regarding the fare charged for transportation services provided to Rider by Goober.
“Cart Fee” is defined as the non-refundable fee charged to a Rider’s preferred payment method, covering the base cost of a ride, regardless of total trip distance. A Cart Fee will not be refunded if a requested driver has arrived to a pickup location prior to the ride being cancelled and is charged based on total number of vehicles required to service a Rider and accompanying party members. Each vehicle utilized for a Rider’s contract will carry no more than legally able as determined by Florida law. Multiple carts may be required to service a party larger than seven passengers.
“Ride Rate” is defined as the distance charge applicable to each Rider and accompanying party member, which is based on distance traveled while onboard a Goober vehicle.
“Goober Account” is defined as any account created by a user or Rider of the Goober Mobile Application, whether they request a ride within this Application or not. At the creation of such account, users agree that information provided and services outlined therein and within these Terms and Conditions are the property of Get A Goober, LLC and Riders authorize Goober to use this information for no purpose other than providing services during a contract. Account holders agree that they are 18 years of age or will be accompanied by an adult of 18 years or older while riding in Goober vehicles.
“Scheduled Ride” is defined as any ride requested more than 30 minutes in advance. Scheduled Rides are subject to the availability of Drivers, and rides may be cancelled by either party for any reason, so long as this cancellation occurs more than 15 minutes in advance. Scheduled Rides cancelled within 15 minutes of pickup may be subject to a cancellation fee.
“Geographical Operating Territory” is defined as the area of service that Goober vehicles provide on-demand service and contracts within. Geographical Operating Territory is subject to expansion and contraction without notice and will be expressed as an unacceptable or impossible ride request based on pickup location and/or destination. Unacceptable rides will be met with a prompt offering Riders the option to call Goober directly in order to coordinate transportation outside of the current Geographical Operating Territory, which may be subject to increased rates. Geographical Operating Territory is available to Riders via the Goober Mobile Application.
“Preferred Payment Method” is defined as the methods of payment Riders link to their profile, including but not limited to credit/debit cards, PayPal accounts, and other means of compensation for services. If a Rider’s Preferred Payment Method is deemed invalid, supplemental payment methods listed on the Rider’s account will be charged. If no alternative methods are linked, Goober has the authorization to attempt collection via the Preferred Payment Method continuously until any unpaid balance is resolved. A Preferred Payment Method will be required in order for Riders to successfully request a ride, and Riders will not be able to successfully place a subsequent ride until prior balances are resolved.
Goober provides short-term transportation solutions, including golf carts and other motorized vehicles, offered on an as needed basis. Riders will download the Goober Mobile Application to create a Rider profile which requires a preferred payment method. Once a Rider’s Account is completed, Riders have access to on-demand rides that fit their specific needs and for their own use, so long as the pickup location and destination fall within Goober’s Geographical Operating Territory. Updates to these territories will be reflected in real time and will be shown on the Goober Mobile Application. Goober Drivers are notified of a Rider’s request and proceed at an agreed upon time and location of the Rider’s choosing, as efficiently as possible. As Drivers arrive, Riders are able to track a Driver’s location and should proceed to the designated pickup location in a timely manner. Trips have a previously agreed upon destination and route, which is determined by the Goober mobile application. Routes taken may be altered by a Driver’s real time knowledge of the Geographical Operating Territory. Trips may be ended early at the discretion of Rider or Driver. If a Trip is ended early, the quoted Fare Estimation will still remain valid unless explicitly verbalized by Goober staff. Drivers reserve the right to end Trips early if encountered with, but not limited to the following conditions: unsafe weather or road conditions, unsafe or inappropriate behaviors taken by the Rider or their accompanying party. Riders or a member of their accompanying party may also request to end the Trip at any time. It is at the Driver’s discretion to determine a safe and appropriate place to end the ride.
Anticipated Timeline of Ride:
Upon Rider’s confirmation of a Trip request, Goober makes every effort to arrive to the pickup location or an area accessible to the pickup location at the estimated time shown through the Goober Mobile Application. Goober cannot control and takes no responsibility for outside factors impacting this arrival time which may cause undue delays or lost opportunities. These outside factors include but are not limited to unpublished or unforeseen road closures, traffic impairments of any sort, and vehicle malfunctions. Upon notice of any of the listed or otherwise impacting factors, Goober will make every effort to contact the Rider to notify them of this change. Upon receipt of this notification, the Rider is free to cancel their ride without penalty.
Distance Rate and Applicable Charges:
Goober charges a Cart Fee for each cart required to service Rider and their accompanying party. Goober vehicles will hold no more passengers than legally allowed by Florida law. Ride Rates are also charged for each trip. Ride Rates are based on the distance of each individual ride and number of Riders in a party. Rides cancelled early, or before reaching the scheduled destination for any reason are subject to the charges accumulated up to that point, and will not be less than the estimated fare unless explicitly verbalized by Goober Drivers. Once requested, Trips cancelled by Riders after a Driver has been assigned and dispatched, up until the time Rider and/or accompanying party board the vehicle are subject to a refund up to the full Ride Rate. Once a trip has been initiated with the Rider and any accompanying party, the Ride Rate is no longer refundable and will be reviewed by Goober staff on a case-by-case basis. Regardless of cancellation timeline, Cart Fees are non-refundable unless the cancellation request is received prior to dispatching of the assigned driver.
Terms of Payment:
Each Trip will be processed as an individual transaction. A subsequent tip amount added, if any, is processed as a separate transaction. Payments are processed via the Rider’s preferred payment method, as chosen in the Goober Mobile Application. Riders agree that upon request and confirmation of a Ride, the Rider has authorized Goober to process any payment applicable to their Ride or cancellation thereof at the time of request and confirmation. Full payment will be made available at the immediate completion of each ride. If, for any reason, funds are not made immediately available by Rider’s Preferred Payment Method, Riders agree for this amount due to be processed on supplemental payment methods listed within their Goober Account. For a transaction attempted by Goober which is declined for any reason, Riders acknowledge their liability for the full amount payable will remain until processed and approved. Riders will not be able to utilize Goober services until this transaction has been processed and cleared. If this balance persists after attempting to charge all applicable payment methods, Riders agree to allow Goober to debit this outstanding balance amount from any additional payment method uploaded, whether this payment method is new to the account or has been added previously. Goober reserves the right to process any unpaid balances for up to one year after the ride has been completed. Upon successful payment of any outstanding balance, full access to the Goober Mobile Application will be immediately reinstated.
