CarTrip is a way of carpooling – instantly – using a website or mobile app. Use it to save the planet, make new friends, earn some money and save on petrol.
Why do we all drive in our cars on our own? Why don’t we all ride share to work and back and get lifts with each other?
Using an app like CarTrip can save you money by splitting the costs of petrol and help you in avoiding busy public transport and take more cars off the roads at peak times.
According to a CarTrip survey, of the more than 1000 motorists approached by CarTrip, it was found that over 70% were alone in their cars between 6am and 9am. If these 1000 motorists had rideshared with three others, the number of cars on the road would have been reduced by 75%.
CarTrip is an internet-based ridesharing platform, whereby car drivers and potential passengers can connect using a website or mobile application. The driver is travelling from one destination to another destination, independent of any passengers, and can pick up and drop them off along the way, with minor deviations, for the convenience of the pickup and drop-off.
Nationally, the figures are much the same; there are over 10 million cars and bakkies on the road and 70% of these vehicles have three empty seats which leaves 20 million empty car seats in South Africa. CarTrip Founder, Chris Faure says, “If we could fill a portion of these empty seats with passengers it would dramatically reduce congestion on the roads. Given the size of our population and the number of cars and empty seats on the roads, sharing your car with two or three other passengers could reduce traffic by more than 50%.”
