It is projected that just under 45 million vehicles will be in global carpooling programs by 2025.- reports Statista.
The Concept of Carpooling or ridesharing came into existence during world war 2 and became popular in the 1970s due to energy crisis and oil embargo. Due to the significant rise in the usage of mobile applications having a custom carpooling application for your business makes sense. On-demand Ridesharing apps have become the saviour for daily commuters. According to Macquarie Bank report, there were 88.1 million vehicles sailing around the globe in 2016 and BMI reports suggests there was a 3.6% growth in 2018. All these vehicles do no good for the environment and have adverse consequences. Now, we can’t stop the current transportation scenario, but we can minimize the repercussion. Surveys suggest that there are at least 3 seats vacant in every car rushing towards its destination, rushing along with other cars going to the very same destination.
Apart from the serious environmental issues, many focus groups held in the United States preferred to drive with a companion rather than driving alone. Driving alone can be at times stressful as well as a burden on your budget.
Started in 2006, this french carpooling app startup is now in the million euro company club. Frederic Mazzella, the co-founder, had this idea when in 2003 he faced an ordeal in travelling back home as his last-minute plan left him with no arrangements getting back home. Currently, this app has a presence in 14 countries around the globe. This application is a bridge connecting people with the same destination, also helping save money as well as the environment
