Carpool in Bangalore

Bangalore, the tech city of India suffers from the problem of traffic every single day with rapid urbanization and population growth. In 2023, Bangalore was ranked the sixth most congested city in the world in terms of traffic on its streets, as per the traffic index from TomTom.

In 2022, Bangalore secured the second position in the global traffic congestion ranking, with a reported average travel time of 29 minutes to cover a 10-kilometer distance and an average speed of 14 kilometers per hour during peak hours. Although the time has since been reduced in 2023 to 28 minutes to cover the same distance, the congestion level was recorded at 63%.

The air quality in Bangalore has deteriorated by 40% within a year, with the Air Quality Index (AQI) rising from 66 in November 2021 to 93 in November 2022. 

Traffic congestion in Bangalore

According to an official from the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board, one of the main reasons for this decline is attributed to increased traffic congestion in Bangalore.

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.

It should be noted that ridesharing in POOLit is not just limited to personal vehicles but one can also share Ola/Uber cabs on this platform. Find your co-traveler on POOLit, book an Ola/Uber, and split fare.

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.
