Welcome to Revel!
Revel Transit, Inc.

Any individual (“User” or “you”) may access the Website and download the App. To use the Service, a User must be a “Member” in good standing as described in the Rental Agreement.
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
Use of the Platform is governed by the following legal documents:
Terms Applying to Members
Terms Applying to Users who are not Members
You should visit this page from time to time to review the then-current Legal Terms because they are legally binding on you. Your continued use of the Platform after we provide notice of any modification will mean that you have agreed to be bound by those Terms. Your use of the Platform will be subject to the Legal Terms in effect at the time of use.
In this document, terms that commence with a capital letter have the same definition as that which is provided in the ToU, Section 3.
This policy applies to information we collect or receive from third parties:
