Lipscomb University & Earth Rides
An Earth-Friendly Partnership
About Earth Rides
Safety. Quality. Mission-driven.
Earth Rides is on a mission to reduce carbon emissions. We do that by deploying a fleet of 100% electric vehicles – no gas, no hybrids, no excuses. Beyond clean air, we believe that every ride should be a premium experience which is why we go the extra mile of owning and operating a fleet of Teslas, the safest car on the market. Fair living wages and exposing frontline communities to clean tech is on our radar which is why all of our drivers are employees. And lastly, perhaps our most important advantage, we take extra steps like ensuring our drivers background checks are periodically kept up to date through the FBI screening process to ensure safety for rider and driver alike.
Your students deserve to experience Nashville through the lens of clean air, safety, and quality.
