Carpolo is a real time, community-based and achievement-driven carpooling platform.
Carpolo is a smart carpooling system with a points reward system and insightful analytics such as CO2 emissions saved and overall impact of carpooling within the user community. The platform acts as a search engine for unused car space or ride requests. The application then matches users together – rider and driver – who are along the same route. It also provides a rating system that helps riders feel comfortable with their paired carpool companion.
Public transportation, taxis, personal cars
Goal 11: Sustainable cities and communities
Carpolo uses GPS to connect drivers and passengers and calculates saved CO2 emissions. On each successful carpool points are awarded to both the driver and passenger which the user can then redeem for phone credit.
Users can send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” or send a message through the app.
User reviews can be found where the application available for download.
No third-party organizations, only testing performed by the designer.
Users can choose to accept a ride after approving the person who sent the request by checking his/her profile. Moreover, the trip and person that the user is carpooling with are saved via the app before the ride begins. All carpools done via Carpolo are insured by Commercial Insurance.
