Carpool in Bangalore
Bangalore, the tech city of India suffers from the problem of traffic every single day. In a recent report, Livemint published that Bangalore has the worst traffic in the world.
“Bangalore takes the top spot this year with drivers in the southern Indian city expecting to spend an average of 71% extra travel time stuck in traffic,” TomTom said in the ninth edition of its annual Traffic Index.
With the aim of having “One Less Car On The Road”, POOLit believes that carpooling & ridesharing is a very effective method of curbing this issue of traffic in Bangalore. Through POOLit, one can share their vehicle with other people going on that similar route. One classic example that comes up in the process of carpooling in Bangalore is people sharing rides while going to office (work) from home and vice versa.
The morning and evening time in Bangalore are the peak times when the corporate people travel. Carpooling helps them in saving their travelling time and cost. Since POOLit works on ‘Pay What You Want’ model, it creates a culture of helpfulness and gives a choice to the driver whether the person wants to accept money or not.
As more and more people choose carpooling as their commute option, it will eventually reduce the number of cars on the road and hence will help in controlling the traffic of Bengaluru. Ridesharing also helps in reducing the carbon pollutants and makes the environment clean. Not just carpooling, people have shown interest in bike pooling as well where they use the same concept of carpooling on bikes.
