Hey, requesting to know how we are getting a ride_id, is it a random number ? and how does it map to a unique date, time and route,

Hi Charles, ride_id is a random unique ID number of a vehicle on a specific route on a specific day and time. If you have a look at the training data you can see that the same ride_id comes up a few times as tickets are sold for that ride. Hope that helps. Good luck!

Yes it helps, thanks!
