Sociali is a ride sharing app and platform. It can be instantly used by any community of people, such as schools, businesses, senior centers, kids activity centers, companies and day cares. It is for everyone (kids, college students, adults, seniors, disabled, professionals).
Key features of the app and platform:
- Allows ride sharing with better utilization of existing vehicles
Sociali provides an easy, alternate transportation option for multiple types of vehicles (car, bus, van, etc). It allows using the existing idle vehicles of the community for shared transportation, thereby reducing the size of fleets needed for school and event transport. Thus 2 or more non-profits and or businesses can use the same van at different points in the day.
- Built on Safety & Trust.
1. Community driven (Trusted Friends as Drivers) - Members of the community, people you know and trust can use the platform to provide ride sharing services. This also increases community engagement and builds a stronger community. Thus we can help people physically get out of their front door and easily into a mode of transit.
2. Real time ride tracking - Sociali allows parents/loved ones to see where the kids or seniors are during the ride for additional safety
3. Customizable control over who your ride request goes to - ride share only with people you are comfortable with.
- Deliver Economic benefits to the community
Sociali is free and will enable :
1. Earn gift cards: Members to request and offer rides, from the community. We use Points (“Karma Points”) to keep score of rides. Giving rides earns Points, taking rides uses Points. We let users convert excess Points to real world gift cards, to incentivize people to offer rides.This is beneficial to the individuals and supports the community. Help and get helped, it is good Karma! This can help those community members that cannot afford a $3 transit fee.
2. New Income opportunity for the community - idle assets (cars, trucks) of the community can be put to use to generate income. Stay at home moms and other part time workers can generate new income.
Sociali can be used by any community instantly. For businesses it can be deployed within hours in any city in the world.
Sociali can be integrated with the Metro Bus service to complement the service, and provide a seamless 'last mile' transport from the bus stop to home and home to bus stop. It can also fill in the gaps in the bus service routes.
