Carpooling

Carpooling – have you ever heard of this? Well Carpooling is a shared use of a private car, in particular for commuting to and from work and other purposes, often by car owners (drivers) and people (passengers) traveling to the same destination by other means of transport. There are often times when car owners have empty seats in their car because they don’t know of anyone who needs a lift.
This can, be avoided by using our carpool network where one-to-one matching is done automatically; the driver and passenger have to simply accept the match done by the system. Due to the nature of carpooling it is most appropriate for pre-planned or regular journey

The concept of carpooling is in its infancy stage in India, and Mumbai is slowly catching up to this concept. www.carpoolmumbai.com is the first of its kind carpooling website in India and through this website the concept of carpooling is gaining popularity. Am sure that such innovative ideas are the only things the common man can come up especially with such high fuel price hikes.

So Mumbai are you ready to carpool?

    http://www.carpool.in/ – CARPOOL.in has been providing carpool services from 2004 itself.

    Carpooling has been around for quite some time though not done professionally. In my previous organization about 25% of people used to do carpooling which helped them during the times of petrol price hikes
