The NewsCar app, which will be launched in Sydney in late April 2017, allows motorists to be paid for supplying free-to-air TV networks with live video from the scene of breaking news events. The app enables TV networks to identify motorists who are close to the scene and direct them to record "first response" video on their mobile phone in return for instant payment. Members of the Ride Share Drivers Association of Australia will be given priority in allocating first response assignments.
