Issue Description

while trying to register for a nonprofit rideshare in Austin Texas called rideshare Austin, the app tells me VoIP numbers are not allowed and will not let me register. Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution?

Search for Venmo

To clarify, no, there is no solution other than to use a different rideshare service.
RW numbers are classfied as VOIP/Landline, not “mobile number” and many services, like many banks, or sites like Twitter, Venmo etc, do not accept VOIP. That is the set policy by that company/service. You can complain to them, sadly there is nothing RW can do about this.

I have never used any such rideshare service, but I have not heard of anything other than Uber or Lyft.
