Just how does it work?
As a collective, Free Ride is supported and operated by the community of people who use it.
Free Ride aims to operate without a hierarchy and to be respectful of all people. It is important that members of the Free Ride community are respected and encouraged to learn.
The collective council is the governing body responsible for major decisions at Free Ride. Membership in the collective council is open to anybody. Although everything may not be recorded, this page is devoted to these decisions in a Q and A Format.
