We all know carpool could save time, money and make commute more enjoyable. But why not people carpool in the city. Because it is always hard to organize. We developed a mobile app to take care of this. All people need to do is put their commute schedule in our app. We help them matching, start the trip and make payments among riders and driver. This could help people save money, and reduce the city traffic by two during the rush hour.

Commuters or employees would take advantage of our product. For example, Mike just moved to Mexico city without his car. He could request a ride from other commuters who are on the same way. His driver, Jack, may work in the same work area. On the other hand, Jack took Mike to work and earn certain reimbursement.

We make money from both B2C and B2B channel. For B2C, we charge service fee on each matched and completed trip. Our average price for one trip is $6. The service fee is about $1 per person per trip. The revenue will increase with the user adoption. For B2B, we partner with local employers to provide service platform, subsidized employee pricing and report. We charge a subscription fee.
