To celebrate the two years in operation, the startup organised a programme called the Ride Share Week. the Ride Share Week ran through June 5 to June 10 2017. The programme, which will now take place annually saw a lot of individuals winning amazing prizes.

The Ride Share Week was launched as an initiative from GoMyWay to create more awareness to the public about GoMyWay.
