Our Values

The Ride:

Oftentimes, the most memorable part of any journey is what happens on the way to your destination. Bum A Ride users value the journey as much as the destination - carpe diem - enjoy the ride!

Create your very own global transportation network so that you and your (new) friends have multiple ways of backpacking from here to there - for FREE. You will soon be global!


Be loyal and honest with other Bum A Ride users as this is how friendships and trust are formed.


Make an effort to serve others through the communities in which you travel. This can be done through volunteering, participating in a community service projects, or donating to an individual or good cause at each of your destinations. It's good karma!


Let no good deed go unnoticed, unstated, nor unreciprocated.
