What about holidays?

The vans don’t run on most major holidays. If you have to work on those days, you have to provide your own transportation. There are some holidays on which some vans run and others don’t. If you need to work that day and are assigned to one of the vans that is not running, we will try to place you on another van for that day. 

Normally, you do not deduct holidays from your monthly payment. The only time you would deduct a holiday is when you work on a non-major day such as Columbus Day when Rideshare is not able to place you on another van.
