TO GO COMMUNITY GUIDELINES
TO GO Community Guidelines
Our guidelines were developed to help make every experience feel safe, respectful, and positive. They apply to everyone who uses TO GO’s platform (“TO GO Marketplace Platform”), including but not limited to drivers, riders, delivery people, TO GO Eats users, merchants, and businesses. It also includes interactions you may have with TO GO employees and contractors, including at Greenlight Hubs, through online support systems, or over the phone.* And, in some instances, our guidelines apply to conduct outside the TO GO Marketplace Platform that we become aware of, including but not limited to information from other platforms, when such conduct may threaten the safety of the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
Thank you for joining us in supporting and safeguarding a welcoming environment.
The guidelines below help explain some of the specific kinds of positive community engagement on the TO GO Marketplace Platform, as well as the behaviors or circumstances that may cause you to lose access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform. There will always be unforeseen events that may ultimately lead to your losing access to using the TO GO Marketplace Platform and services, but the following guidelines—which we’ll update regularly—provide the basis for behavior we expect from all in the TO GO community. Not following any one of our guidelines can constitute a material breach or violation of the terms of your agreement with TO GO and may result in the loss of access to part or all of the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Please take a moment to read them.
Guidelines for all of us
Everyone who signs up for an TO GO account is required to follow TO GO’s Community Guidelines. They reflect the following 3 pillars and the standards in each of these sections.
Treat everyone with respect
Our community is remarkably diverse and, chances are, you will encounter people who might not look like you or share your beliefs. The guidelines in this section help to foster positive interactions during every experience.
Help keep one another safe
We’re hard at work every day to help create safer experiences for everyone. Your safety drives us. That’s why these standards were written. In addition to these general TO GO Community Guidelines, you can also find more standards just for TO GO Eats under “Additional guidelines for TO GO Eats merchants and delivery people” below.
Follow the law
We’re committed to following all applicable laws and earning your trust, and we expect everyone who uses the TO GO Marketplace Platform to do their part and adhere to relevant laws and regulations, as well as airport rules and regulations where applicable.
Your feedback matters
If something happens, whether it’s good or bad, we make it easy for you to tell us directly in the app or by contacting the TO GO Support team. Our team is continually improving our standards and policies, and your feedback is important so that we can take appropriate action to keep our standards relevant as our technology evolves.
Treat everyone with respect
Treat everyone in the TO GO community as you would like to be treated yourself: with respect. The actions you take while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform can have a big impact on the safety and comfort of others. Courtesy matters. That’s why you are expected to exercise good judgment and behave decently toward other people when using the TO GO Marketplace Platform and interacting with others in the TO GO community—just as you would in any public place.
For example, always try to be on time for your ride or to pick up your delivery. It’s also common courtesy not to shout, swear, or slam doors. And by tidying up after yourself—whether it’s taking your trash home or cleaning up a spilled drink—you’ll help ensure that everyone has a pleasant ride. Most importantly, remember that when you interact with others in the TO GO community, you may meet people who may look different from you or think differently than you. Please respect those differences. We believe that everyone should feel supported and welcomed when interacting with others in the TO GO community. That’s why we’ve created standards and policies on physical contact, sexual assault and misconduct, threatening and rude behavior, post-trip contact, discrimination, and property damage.
Don’t touch strangers or anyone you just met while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Limited exceptions are permitted for people needing or requesting physical assistance (for example, riders using TO GO Assist who may need help getting into and out of the vehicle). Hurting or intending to hurt anyone is never allowed.
Sexual assault and misconduct
We all value our personal space and privacy. It’s OK to chat with other people. But please don’t comment on someone’s appearance or ask whether they are single. Sexual assault and sexual misconduct of any kind is prohibited. Sexual assault and misconduct refers to sexual contact or behavior without explicit consent of the other person.
Personal space and privacy should be respected. The following list provides examples of inappropriate conduct but is not exhaustive.
Do not ask personal questions (for example, about relationship status or sexual orientation)
Do not comment on appearance (for example, derogatory or “complimentary” comments)
Do not make explicit comments or gestures (for example, slurs, or graphic or suggestive messages)
Do not flirt (for example, nonverbal, suggestive flirting, or being too physically close)
Do not display indecent material (for example, sexually suggestive objects or pictures)
TO GO has a no-sex rule regardless of whether you know the person or they give you their consent
Threatening and rude behavior
Aggressive, confrontational, or harassing behavior is not allowed. Don’t use language, make gestures, or take actions that could be disrespectful, threatening, or inappropriate. For example, don’t share graphic images (such as those that are sexually explicit or depict physical violence) with others in the TO GO community; this includes unsolicited sharing of such images through TO GO’s online support systems or in connection with an TO GO Marketplace Platform experience. It is also a good idea to stay away from personal topics that can potentially be divisive, like religion and political beliefs.
Contact should end when the trip or delivery is complete, unless it’s to return a lost item. Unwanted contact can be seen as harassment and includes, for example, texting, calling, social media contact, visiting, or trying to visit someone in person after a trip or delivery has been completed. Do not share any unnecessary contact information.
You should always feel safe and welcome. That’s why we don’t tolerate discriminatory conduct or behavior, including toward the TO GO Support team or at Greenlight Hubs. Do not discriminate against someone based on traits such as their age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, pregnancy, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected under relevant law.
For example, it is unacceptable to:
Refuse to provide services based on characteristics like a person’s age, color, disability, gender identity, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected under relevant law.
Rate another user—whether drivers, riders, delivery people, TO GO Eats users, merchants, restaurants, or businesses—based on these traits.
Discriminate on the basis of a rider’s destination or an TO GO Eats user’s delivery location. We understand how important it is to fit driving or delivering around your life, rather than the other way around. It is not a violation of these guidelines to decline a trip or delivery because it does not work for you. But intentionally refusing or canceling requests, or using features on the TO GO Marketplace Platform to avoid receiving trip or delivery requests, solely for the purpose of avoiding a particular neighborhood due to the characteristics of the people or businesses that are located in that area, is not allowed.
You can learn more about TO GO’s Non-Discrimination Policy here.
We also want to help increase the transport options and delivery options for people with disabilities. That’s why we have information available for drivers, riders, and TO GO Eats users on this topic. You can go here to learn more about TO GO’s commitment to accessibility. Drivers using the TO GO Marketplace Platform must comply with all relevant laws governing the transportation of riders with disabilities, including transporting service animals and assistive devices (such as wheelchairs).
Damaging property is never allowed. Some examples include damaging the car or other mode of transportation requested through the TO GO Marketplace Platform, breaking or vandalizing a phone or tablet, intentionally spilling food or drink, smoking in a car, damaging a merchant’s premises, or vomiting due to excessive alcohol consumption or otherwise. If you damage property, you’re responsible for the cost of cleaning and repair fees, outside of normal wear and tear.
Help keep one another safe
Everyone has a role to play in helping to create a safe environment. That’s why we have standards on account sharing, account holder age, and more.
Account sharing is not allowed. To use the TO GO Marketplace Platform, you need to register and maintain an active account. Don’t let another person use your account, and never share your personal information used in connection with your account, including but not limited to username, password, or photos of yourself, with anyone else to access the TO GO Marketplace Platform. For example, delivery people must complete all parts of the delivery themselves—including any handling after the order is picked up from the merchant up until final delivery to the TO GO Eats user—with no exception.
People under the age of 18
You must be 18 years or older to have an TO GO account. This means that you must be at least 18 years old to ride unaccompanied in a vehicle. Account holders can’t request a ride or delivery for someone under the age of 18 who will not be accompanied by either the account holder or another adult during the ride or when collecting the delivery. When ordering food, children are also not allowed to use an adult’s TO GO Eats account by themselves. These age limitations apply unless our local guidelines, terms, or other policies say otherwise.
Extra riders and non-account riders
When driving with TO GO, no one other than the driver, the requesting rider, and the rider’s guests should be in the vehicle. These guidelines apply unless our local guidelines, terms, or other policies say otherwise. When riding with TO GO, the account holder is responsible for the behavior of their entire party. If you request a ride or a delivery for another adult, you’re held responsible for their behavior during their trip or delivery.
For an easy pickup or delivery, the TO GO Marketplace Platform gives riders and TO GO Eats users identifying information about drivers and delivery people and their vehicles, including their license plate number, vehicle make and model, profile picture, and name. Inaccurate or outdated information creates confusion among riders and TO GO Eats users and can diminish their experience using the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
Drivers and delivery people must complete trips and deliveries using only approved vehicles. To provide accurate information, let us know your vehicle information and provide any updates to your documentation that may become invalid, like a driver’s license that’s about to expire.
Seat belt use can be the most effective way to save lives and reduce injuries related to vehicle crashes. Every delivery person using a vehicle, every driver, and every rider—including those in the back seat—should always buckle up. Riders should request a vehicle that has enough seat belts for everyone in their party and not travel in large groups that exceed the number of seat belts in the vehicle. Drivers can decline a ride if there are not enough seat belts in their vehicle for every rider.
Helmets for bikes, motorcycles, and scooters
For your safety, when riding a bike, motorcycle, or scooter, find a helmet that fits well. Helmets can help protect you when worn according to the manufacturer’s instructions, such as sitting low on your forehead and fitting snugly under your chin.
Use of dashcams that record video and/or audio
Drivers may choose to install and use a dashcam, which can be used to record rides and provide evidence to TO GO, law enforcement, or insurance companies in the event that something goes wrong on a ride. Please note the following:
Riders entering a rideshare vehicle with a dashcam may be concerned about how the video, their image, or conversations captured by a dashcam will be used. In some locations, local laws and regulations require that a rider provide consent to being recorded. Please check your local laws to understand your responsibilities.
Sharing or streaming a person’s image or audio or video recording on social media or in other digital or physical public locations is a violation of our Community Guidelines and may prompt further investigation by our safety team.
Being out on the road means doing your part to help keep yourself and others safe. This means keeping your eyes on the road and being well rested, so you can quickly react to any situation. We review reports of crashes and potentially unsafe driving behavior.
Proper maintenance and upkeep
Pursuant to the terms of their agreement with TO GO, drivers and delivery people are expected to keep their vehicles maintained and in good operating condition, including but not limited to brakes, seat belts, and tires. This means maintaining their vehicle according to industry safety and maintenance standards, and monitoring for and repairing any parts that are recalled by the vehicle manufacturer.
Share the road
Safe roadways require drivers to practice safe behavior, which includes looking out for all travelers, regardless of how they get around.
TO GO may take additional measures to try to preserve the safety of our platform during public emergencies, including but not limited to natural disasters, public health emergencies, and public crisis situations.
For example, if TO GO receives notice from a public health authority that someone using the TO GO Marketplace Platform may present a potential for public harm, we may temporarily block the individual’s access until it is reasonably safe to allow the individual to resume using the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Similarly, we may prevent individuals in an entire city or region from using part or all of the TO GO Marketplace Platform or impose other requirements to comply with guidance from authorities during a time of public health emergency, natural disaster, or other public crisis situation, or when the continued availability of the TO GO Marketplace Platform might present a danger.
Additional guidelines for TO GO Eats merchants and delivery people
In addition to following all of TO GO’s Community Guidelines, users of the TO GO Eats platform must follow the standards below that apply to TO GO Eats orders and deliveries.
Proper handling of orders (information for merchants)
Merchants are expected to meet all relevant licensing requirements and all other food laws and regulations—including food safety and hygiene regulations—plus industry best practices and TO GO policies. Merchants must maintain valid licenses and/or permits where required by law.
Many prepared foods are perishable and can cause illness if not properly handled. Such foods can be potentially hazardous if not maintained under the proper time and temperature controls prior to pickup.
To help ensure that food reaches TO GO Eats users safely, merchants are encouraged to seal packages in tamper-evident packaging ahead of delivery. Merchants are expected to act responsibly on information provided by TO GO Eats users related to food allergies, intolerances, or other dietary restrictions and reject order requests with which they cannot comply.
Proper delivery of orders (information for delivery people)
Merchants may outline certain delivery guidelines that promote food safety, adhere to regulatory guidance, or accommodate TO GO Eats user dietary restrictions. For example, merchants may notify a delivery person to keep halal and non-halal food separate. Delivery people should always follow such guidelines from merchants.
A delivery person using an insulated bag can make for a better TO GO Eats user experience, but it isn’t required unless the delivery person is delivering in a location where it’s required by law. Deliveries by bicycle may benefit from a more specialized bag to protect food from movement and weather conditions.
Delivery people should deliver orders safely and in accordance with relevant safety standards. For example, they may not tamper with or open packaging during delivery.
How merchants can provide a safe space for pickups
Merchants and their staff are expected to exercise good judgment and behavior around delivery people and make them feel welcome, just as they would with their in-person customers. They should also provide a safe area for order pickups; for example, merchants should work to prevent violent incidents on the merchant premises that might endanger delivery people’s safety.
All orders that contain alcohol must comply with any applicable laws and restrictions on off-premise alcohol delivery and hours of service. Only TO GO Eats users who are the legal age to buy alcohol (21 in the US, and 18 or 19 in Canada) or older, and not intoxicated, can order and receive alcohol deliveries where such deliveries are available. TO GO Eats users will be asked to show government-issued photo IDs to verify age and identity when an alcohol delivery arrives. If the TO GO Eats user does not have a valid government-issued photo ID, or appears intoxicated, the alcohol portion of the order will not be able to be delivered and may be returned to the seller on the TO GO Eats user’s behalf and at the TO GO Eats user’s expense. TO GO Eats users may not place an order that includes alcohol to be delivered to a public location where open containers are prohibited, or to any other areas where possession or consumption of alcohol is prohibited by law.
Creating a positive experience for delivery people and TO GO Eats users
It’s important for merchants to treat delivery people and TO GO Eats users with respect.
Merchants should be careful to fulfill and include the correct items in their TO GO Eats user’s order. When an TO GO Eats user does not receive items or receives wrong items, it can lead to a poor experience.
Long preparation times, long delivery person handoff times (the amount of time it takes for the delivery person to get in and out of the merchant’s location with the order, including wait time), low online time (a merchant’s online availability time), long delays before order acceptance, and high cancellation rates also create a negative experience for TO GO Eats users and delivery people.
If these metrics, or others, are significantly worse than the average for a merchant’s city, they may negatively impact other parties’ experiences with the TO GO Eats platform, so a merchant’s metrics should be at least average for its city. If a merchant’s metrics are below the minimum standard, we will let them know.
Merchants may only offer for sale items expressly contemplated under their agreement with TO GO. Specially regulated or illicit items, such as cannabidiol (CBD) and tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) are not allowed to be offered on a merchant’s TO GO Eats menu. TO GO may remove from—or otherwise limit the merchant’s ability to post to—a merchant’s TO GO Eats menu any items TO GO deems prohibited or inappropriate.
Follow the law
We have standards based on applicable laws and regulations that everyone must follow. For example, using the TO GO Marketplace Platform to commit any crime—such as transporting drugs, money laundering, committing drug or human trafficking, or sexually exploiting children—or to violate any other law is strictly prohibited.
Follow all laws
Everyone is responsible for knowing and obeying all applicable laws, including airport rules and regulations when at the airport, and the rules of the road—including complying with traffic laws, signs, and signals—at all times when using the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
All relevant licenses, permits, and any other legal documents required of drivers and delivery people must be kept up to date. For example, all drivers and delivery people using a vehicle are required by law to maintain a valid driver’s license, insurance, and vehicle registration. For ridesharing, this also includes meeting the applicable regulatory requirements for rideshare or for-hire drivers in your area. We review reports of crashes or traffic citations that may have happened during a trip or delivery, and other reports, including but not limited to those that may indicate poor, unsafe, or distracted driving. Local rules about parking may limit where drivers and delivery people can park their vehicle when picking up orders, making deliveries, or waiting for riders to arrive or to exit a vehicle. For example, stopping in bike lanes or blocking accessibility ramps may violate the law.
For riders and TO GO Eats users, let your driver or delivery person handle the driving. For example for riders, don’t touch the steering wheel, and don’t tamper with the gear shift or other knobs, buttons, or components that are used to operate a vehicle. For riders and TO GO Eats users, don’t ask a driver or delivery person to speed or to make illegal stops, dropoffs, or maneuvers.
When riding or parking a bike or scooter, be mindful of local regulations and rules; you can check your city government’s website for applicable laws. Following local rules of the road usually requires you to yield to pedestrians, ride in the direction of traffic, signal if you’re planning to change direction, and come to a complete stop at red lights and stop signs.
Drivers and riders should comply with applicable laws when traveling with infants and small children. Where use of a car seat is required by law, it’s the rider’s responsibility to provide and fit a suitable car seat, unless our local guidelines, terms, or other policies say otherwise. Children age 12 and under should travel in the back seat.
When picking up riders traveling with small children, drivers can give them extra time to properly install a car seat before driving off. If a rider doesn’t have the appropriate car seat, if a driver is not comfortable with a rider installing one in their car, if a child does not appear to be within the height and weight safety requirements for the car seat, or if a driver otherwise feels that the child cannot be safely transported in the seat, the driver can cancel the ride.
Service animals and assistive devices
Drivers using the Driver app may not deny a ride to a rider with a service animal or assistive devices (such as a wheelchair or crutches) because of the service animal or assistive devices. Applicable laws generally prohibit drivers from denying service to riders because of their service animals or assistive devices, and from otherwise discriminating against riders with service animals or assistive devices. Knowingly refusing a rider a trip because of their service animal or assistive devices will result in losing access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform. In the US there are no exceptions to this policy, even if a driver has documented allergies, religious objections, or a fear of animals.
In Canada, a driver can request documentation from a rider if a service animal is not easily identifiable as one. You can learn more about our Service Animal and Assistive Device Policy in the US here and in Canada here.
Drugs and alcohol
Drug use and open containers of alcohol are never allowed while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
If you’re a driver or delivery person, by law you cannot drive or bike while intoxicated. The law prohibits driving or biking while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or any other substance that impairs your ability to safely operate a vehicle or bicycle. If you encounter a rider who is too drunk or rowdy, you have the right to decline the trip for your own safety.
If you’re a rider and you have reason to believe your driver may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, ask the driver to end the trip immediately. Then exit the vehicle and call 911. Once you have left the vehicle, please also report your experience to TO GO.
Riders and their guests, as well as drivers and delivery people, are prohibited from carrying firearms while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform, to the extent permitted by applicable law. You can learn more about our Firearms Prohibition Policy here.
Deception can weaken trust and also be dangerous. Intentionally falsifying information or assuming someone else’s identity, for example when signing in or undergoing a security check, isn’t allowed. It is important to provide accurate information when reporting incidents, creating and accessing your TO GO accounts, disputing charges or fees, and requesting credits. Only request fees or refunds that you’re entitled to, and use offers and promotions only as intended. Don’t knowingly complete invalid transactions.
Fraudulent activity may also include, but not be limited to: deliberately increasing the time or distance of a trip or delivery for fraudulent purposes or otherwise; accepting trip, order, or delivery requests without the intention to complete, including provoking riders or TO GO Eats users to cancel for fraudulent purposes; creating dummy accounts for fraudulent purposes; claiming fraudulent fees or charges, like false cleaning fees; intentionally requesting, accepting, or completing fraudulent or falsified trips or deliveries; claiming to complete a delivery without ever picking up the delivery item; picking up a delivery item but retaining all or a portion of the item, and not delivering the entire order; actions intended to disrupt or manipulate the normal functioning of the TO GO Marketplace Platform, including manipulating the settings on a phone to prevent the proper functioning of the platform and the GPS system; abusing promotions and/or not using them for their intended purpose; disputing charges for fraudulent or illegitimate reasons; creating improper duplicate accounts; or falsifying documents, records, or other data for fraudulent purposes.
Street hails and off-platform pickups
To enhance the safety of each experience, off-platform pickups are prohibited. The law prohibits street hails while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform, so never solicit or accept payment outside the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Riders and TO GO Eats users should not pay for trips or deliveries in cash, and riders should not request trips from drivers outside of the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
Other unacceptable activities
Never use TO GO’s trademark or intellectual property without permission. If it’s required under local law to display TO GO-branded items, drivers and delivery people should only use TO GO-branded items that are obtained from TO GO. Drivers and delivery people should not display TO GO-branded items when they are not accessing the platform. Drivers and delivery people should also return TO GO-branded items to TO GO if they lose access to the platform. The use of unauthorized or third-party items—such as lights, placards, signs, or similar items bearing TO GO’s name or trademark—may confuse riders or TO GO Eats users.
Your feedback matters
If something happens, whether it’s good or bad, we make it easy for you to tell us. Our team is continually improving our standards, and your feedback is important to keep our standards relevant as our technology evolves. Please rate your experience at the end of each trip or delivery. Honest feedback helps ensure that everyone is accountable for their behavior. This accountability helps create a respectful, safe environment. And if something happens—such as a traffic accident—and you want to report it, you can tap Help in the app or visit help.TO GO.com so that our Support team can follow up. In case of an emergency or if you find yourself in immediate danger, alert your local authorities or emergency services before notifying TO GO.
Drivers, riders, delivery people, TO GO Eats users, and merchants can give and receive ratings, as well as give feedback on how the trip or delivery went. This feedback system improves accountability and helps create a respectful, safe, and transparent environment for everyone. Drivers and delivery people can see their current rating in the app. Merchants can find their TO GO Eats user and delivery person rating by signing in to TO GO Eats Manager. Riders can see their rating displayed under their name by opening the app and touching the menu.
There is a minimum average rating in each city. This is because there may be cultural differences in the way people in different cities rate each other. Drivers, riders, delivery people, or merchants that don’t meet the minimum average rating for their city may lose access to all or part of the TO GO Marketplace Platform. If your rating is approaching this limit, we will let you know and may share information that may help you improve your rating.
If you’re looking to keep your average rating high, it’s helpful to be courteous and respectful to all people while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform and interacting with others in the TO GO community. Drivers and delivery people using the TO GO Marketplace Platform typically provide excellent service to their riders and TO GO Eats users, and most riders, delivery people, and TO GO Eats users are courteous and respectful, so most trips and deliveries run smoothly. Contacting Support will not lead to an individual rating being removed. We know that sometimes a trip or delivery doesn’t go well—that’s why your rating is an average rating.
If you’re a driver and you lose access to your TO GO account for low ratings, you may have the opportunity to get back on the road if you meet eligibility requirements and provide proof that you’ve successfully taken a quality improvement course offered by third-party experts. Check with the TO GO Support team, visit a Greenlight Hub, or go to help.TO GO.com to find out more.
Delivery, order, and trip acceptance
If you’re a delivery person or driver and you don’t want to accept delivery or trip requests, you can just go offline or log off. If you’re a merchant, use the Pause New Orders feature or make specific items unavailable. This helps keep the system running smoothly for everyone.
For delivery people, drivers, and merchants, if you consistently decline consecutive trip or order requests, our technology may assume you do not want to accept more trips or orders or have forgotten to log out, and you may be temporarily logged out. However, you are free to log back in whenever you wish to begin confirming availability for trips or orders again.
How TO GO enforces our guidelines
Losing access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform may be disruptive to your life or to your business. That’s why we believe it is important to have clear standards that explain the circumstances in which you may lose access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform. If you violate any terms of your contractual agreement with TO GO, or any applicable terms or policies, including any one of these Community Guidelines or any additional policies and standards that are communicated by TO GO to you from time to time, you can lose access to all or part of the TO GO Marketplace Platform. If you have more than one TO GO account, such as a rider account and a driver account, violating the Community Guidelines could also lead you to lose access to all TO GO accounts. If you believe an error caused you to lose access to your account, you may contact the TO GO Support team.
TO GO receives feedback through a variety of channels, reviews reports submitted to our Support team that may violate our Community Guidelines, and may investigate through a specialized team. If we are made aware of potentially problematic behavior, we may contact you so we can look into it. We may, at our sole discretion, put a hold on your account or turn your account inactive until our review is complete.
Not following any one of our guidelines may result in the loss of access to all or part of the TO GO Marketplace Platform. This can include reported violations of our Community Guidelines and certain actions you may take outside of the TO GO Marketplace Platform, including but not limited to information from other platforms, if we determine that those actions threaten the safety of the TO GO community, our employees, and contractors, or cause harm to TO GO’s brand, reputation, or business. And if the issues raised are serious or a repeat report, or you refuse to cooperate, you may lose access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Any behavior involving violence, sexual misconduct, harassment, fraud, or discrimination, or deceptive, illegal, or unsafe activity, while using the TO GO Marketplace Platform can result in the immediate loss of access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform. Additionally, when law enforcement is involved, we will cooperate with their investigation in accordance with our Guidelines for Law Enforcement Authorities for the US, found here, and for outside the US, found here.
Many states, cities, and airports regulate the provision of certain services, including ridesharing services, on the TO GO Marketplace Platform. If we determine that your driver or delivery person account is not in compliance with applicable regulatory requirements, we may be required to remove your access to the TO GO Marketplace Platform.
Lastly, all drivers and delivery people wanting to use the TO GO Marketplace Platform undergo a screening process, including motor vehicle record and criminal background checks. A driver or delivery person will lose access to their TO GO account(s) if a motor vehicle record check, criminal background check, or other check uncovers a violation of TO GO’s Community Guidelines or other criteria required by local regulators.

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY
Zero Tolerance Policy
Every driver or delivery person who uses the TO GO platform has a responsibility to drive safely and follow the established rules of the road. TO GO has a zero-tolerance policy for the use of alcohol or drugs by drivers using TO GO’s Driver app. If we receive reports of suspected impaired driving, the driver or delivery person may lose access to their account, as stated in their agreement with TO GO.*
What is suspected impaired driving?
A driver or delivery person, by law, may not drive or bike while using alcohol, drugs, or any other substance that impairs their ability to safely operate a vehicle. That includes having open containers of alcohol or drugs in a vehicle while using the TO GO apps.
What is a report of impaired driving?
A report of suspected impaired driving includes a report from any person that explicitly alleges that the driver or delivery person was using, in possession of, or appeared to be impaired by drugs or alcohol, or that the vehicle smelled like alcohol or other drugs.
How does TO GO handle reports of suspected impaired driving?
A report from any person who reasonably suspects the driver is under the influence of drugs or alcohol while providing rideshare services or delivery services will lead to loss of access to the Driver app while further investigation is conducted. If investigation finds sufficient evidence that a driver violated this policy, they will permanently lose access to TO GO’s Driver app.
Will a driver be affected by false rider reports?
Our teams proactively review each report for signs that it might be fraudulent. We are continually implementing new processes and technology to identify and discourage user fraud. Any report that appears to be fraudulent would not affect a driver’s safety history or their status on the Driver app. Users who submit false information to TO GO or otherwise engage in fraudulent activity violate TO GO’s Community Guidelines and risk losing access to the TO GO platform.
What can a driver do if their rider is under the influence?
A driver can always decline a trip for their own safety or if it doesn't work for them (except for discriminatory reasons, as explained in our Community Guidelines). That includes instances where a rider appears too drunk or rowdy, or smells strongly of drugs or alcohol.
What can a rider do if their driver is under the influence?
Drug use and open containers of alcohol are never allowed while using the TO GO platform. If you’re a rider and you have reason to believe your driver may be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, ask the driver to end the trip immediately. Then exit the vehicle and call 911. After the driver has ended the trip, report your experience to TO GO directly in the app by tapping Help from the menu and selecting your issue. You can also get in contact by visiting help.TO GO.com or emailing customercomplaints@TO GO.com.
* Read TO GO’s Community Guidelines to learn more about how TO GO enforces this policy.
For more information about the types of conduct that can cause a user to lose access to the TO GO platform, read our Community Guidelines; go here to understand why drivers and delivery people lose account access.
Note: Our Community Guidelines apply to everyone who uses the TO GO platform, including drivers, riders, delivery people, TO GO Eats users, and merchants. Drivers and delivery people are independent third-party providers and not actual agents, ostensible agents, or employees of TO GO.
