It’s the end of your shift and you can't be bothered to wait for public transport. You’ve decided to walk the couple blocks home but it’s late at night and you’re feeling a little iffy walking home by yourself. Have no fear, Sonder is here!

Track my journey

Sonder's 'Track my journey' feature allows you to share your location with our team, so that we can keep an eye on your progress as you make your way home. 'Track my journey' can help you feel more comfortable and confident when traveling or walking alone. Your journey is monitored by real people - not machines - and if we detect you've stopped or gone off-route, we'll get in touch with you to make sure you're okay.

All you have to do is simply enter your destination and select your mode of travel (walking, cycling or driving). You can then continue your trip in peace knowing that the Sonder team is monitoring you. If you go behind schedule or off track, the Sonder team will contact you through the app, by phone or by SMS. If we can’t reach you, we'll send one of our team members to your last known location to make sure nothing has happened to you. Once you reach your destination, we'll send you a message asking you to confirm you're okay.

Check on me
Carpooling, going to a new colleague's house or attending a new workplace site? Another safety feature from Sonder, Check on Me, prompts one of Sonder's human team to check in on you if you're feeling a bit unsure about a situation. Select the length of time you think you'll need, or the time at which you want us to check on you. When the time is up, one of Sonder's friendly human team will check in and ask you to confirm you're okay. If you need more time, you can use the "snooze" button to extend the session.

If we don't get a response from you at the agreed time, we will do everything we can to get in touch to confirm you're safe and well. If you don't answer, we'll send a Sonder team member to your last known location. We do this so that we know you're safe and well - it's what we're here for.

So the next time you’ve worked a late shift and want that peace of mind while traveling home, Sonder should be your go-to app.
