Our Services

Passengers

3 to 8 former solo-commuters become passengers.
Relax, work, rest, sleep: regain useful time.

Commuter-driver

1 commuter agrees to drive (the commuter-driver) and receives a discounted fare. The commuter-driver is trained in eco-driving and in responsible driving of up to 8 passengers.

Low Cost

One-way cost: $4 to $8 (4€ to 8€) based on distance, excluding toll ways. The cost is similar to the marginal cost of solo-commuting: gas cost, e-charge cost. The cost is substantially lower than the total cost of solo-commuting.

Safer, Clean Vehicle

The electric vehicle is safer: latest generation semi-autonomous.
It is cleaned regularly.
It is located close to the home of the first driver: 1-3 miles (km), with appropriate parking (car, bicycle…).

Your commute

The first driver picks up all commuters. The pick-up points are either at each commuter’s home or at a convenient pick-up spot. The first driver may switch with the main driver i.e. the commuter-driver who receives a discount.

Tolls

Take short-cut toll ways. Fares, unaffordable alone, become affordable when split among 4 to 9 commuters.

About Us

Our Mission

To convert the stressful driving downtime of the solo-commuter into useful time. How? By switching the solo-commuter into a passenger of a car-pool in a 4 to 9-seat e-vehicle:

  • 3 to 8 former solo-commuters become passengers.
  • Relax, work, rest, sleep: regain useful time.
  • 1 commuter agrees to drive (the commuter-driver) and receives a discounted fare.
  • One-way cost: $4 to $8 (4€ to 8€) based on distance, excluding toll ways.
  • Take care of yourself – take care of your planet.

How we work

  • We identify suburb areas and dense employment markets between which there is a significant amount of traffic.
  • We identify suitable parking locations for the e-vehicle at both ends.
  • We target customers, corporations and municipalities at both ends.
  • We seek out parking spaces from corporations and municipalities.
  • We determine favored commutes based on traffic and on commuter/employee feed-back.
  • Customers sign up, commute and relax.

Our Company

We have identified some reasons why open-market ride-pooling / car-pooling for the daily home2work commute has not become the obvious relief to stressful, traffic-jam prone solo-commuting. The main concerns are:

  •  No guaranteed return
  •  The passenger is always in someone else’s vehicle, with associated discomfort
  • The driver does not know what type of passenger and behavior to expect
  • The vehicle is not standardized, neither in comfort nor in tidiness
  • Ride-pooling is most often limited to 2 commuters, limiting cost sharing opportunities

We believe that at a cost close to (with tolls, lower than) the marginal cost of solo-commuting, many will agree to switch one freedom for another:

  • the freedom to leave at any time in one’s own vehicle; for
  • the freedom of additional useful time as a passenger during the commute.
