"Ridesharing" is now a Dictionary word

Ridesharing (v.)

The explosion of ridesharing on the transportation scene in the past few years motivated Oxford Dictionaries Online to include "ridesharing" as a credible word.

According to, Oxford Dictionaries added "ridesharing" earned its way into Oxford Dictionaries as a verb, defining it, "to participate in an arrangement in which a passenger travels in a private vehicle driven by its owner, for free or for a fee, especially as arranged by a website or app" (2015).

We thank all riders who took part in using ridesharing services, contributing to the inclusion of "ridesharing" in Oxford Dictionaries Online and making this movement a credible dictionary word. Ridesharing is now a trendy service used daily by a million members, and counting.
