sRide is the 1st carpooling app in India to offer online payments via PayTM

sRide, the smart carpooling app has now become the first of its kind to offer online payment through PayTM. PayTM is India’s biggest automated payment system, that has been put to use in just about every aspect of life – except travel. With the changing trends and the importance of mobile increasing by the day, we decided to address the need of the hour, and offer our users something that they have all been secretly wishing for – online payments for their daily commute! Carpooling is now slowly being accepted as an alternate means of daily commute – thanks to the long hours of lonely journeys back and forth from offices, and the maddening traffic even on the highways sometimes. sRide becomes the 1st carpool app in India to offer online payment through PayTM. Benefits of online transactions in carpools: Riders can directly pay the car owners through online transfers, without having to sit and calculate shares of each member everyday.   Users can reduce their costs for gas, parking and maintenance, as they get to reimburse a fixed fee for each ride to the driver through a cashless payment system. No hassle for change and keeping records of how much each member has paid for the trip. And the most important of them all, Helps avoid all the money talk and establish stronger relationships by giving the riders a chance to talk about fun things instead of how they are going to make the payments at the end of the ride. The feature is live on Android and is soon going to be rolled out on the iPhone....

Carpooling – the new way of socializing!

It’s a big city, you work long hours, and travel back and forth to your work place, the whole setup is understandably hectic. The hectic life is taking a toll on many a life functions. Our health is compromised, we live in constant stress and on top of all, we are going backwards in our social evolution graph! Yes, it is shocking, that we, the much advanced creed of human species; the modern humans of 21st century are in fact less social. There may be much reason to ponder over, as to why the society is becoming so disintegrated. The reasons are simple and are in front of our eyes, yet we turn a blind eye to them. We have complicated our lives so much, that social conventions went of the window somewhere in the middle of last decade, when smartphones and social media took the front seat. Most of the urban youth is living the corporate life and is engrossed in the never ending travel which is involved with it. People are spending more time than ever on the roads, but not for recreation, but instead in long traffic jams. Amidst all this commotion, social life is non-existent, and we hardly communicate to individuals other than our colleagues and clients, and yes the exclusion list contains friends! All of a sudden, in this socially fragile society, “Carpooling” is picking up pace with the youth. Yes, it is simple and it is viral, as more and more people are finding carpooling as a chance to enhance one’s social circle. What’s terrific about the idea is that people meet other...

Carpooling: The new ‘it’ thing for ladies!

Carpooling: The new ‘it’ thing for ladies!

Life has changed and there’s no doubt in that. Remember how the social conventions were a couple of decades ago? Well yes, the society was very conservative then. Females were not allowed to move about openly and many were not even allowed to work. Life of a female in India was tied around a few poles; father, brother and then husband. But thankfully enough, that’s not the case now. Indian society in general has matured and enriched over the past few years. Call it the international exposure, MNC based work culture or impact of technology, but our lives have definitely changed. Female members of the society are not only working freely, they are independent as ever and racking havoc, while they are at it! Millions of ladies move about to and from work in India, and every individual lady has a particular choice of conveyance. While some stick to the basics and prefer travelling by public transport, many others like the freedom of their own ride. While taxi and cab rides are reserved for urgent times in most of the cases, still it is an option, when in need. Amidst all these preferences, one option of commuting is fast picking pace and is becoming one of the most preferred choices by females. This option is of carpooling, and there are many reasons for it becoming so popular: Economical Females are better managers! The corporate exposure and Business Administration postgraduate degrees have developed a new creed of smart females. Ladies calculate the travelling cost and manage their finances very well. Carpooling is the best option if someone is travelling in...
5 unexpected benefits of carpooling

5 unexpected benefits of carpooling

  We all dream about the big city life – all those big skyscrapers, cars and along with that, the jazz. But once we come here, it is nothing but a dark and gloomy city, submerged in a cloud of smoke and dust. At first we hoped for money and comfort, but after a while all it becomes is tension and deadlines!   We travel for almost half the time we spend in our office. Gone are the days when we used to get up and read a newspaper, drink a cup of tea and chit-chat with our family. We are always in a hurry. We rush out of our homes, hoping not to catch the traffic – but alas so is everyone else! So no matter what you do, the luxury of living is not there anymore. The first challenge we put ourselves through is strenuous travel, traffic and rowdy drivers! Even though there isn’t an alternative to travelling – we don’t have teleportation yet – there is just one last hope that we all have: Carpooling. And as surprising as it may sound, the generation that owns more cars than houses, are actually participating in campaigns that promote the concept. Car free Thursdays in Hyderabad being one of them – they actively promote the concept of using individual car alternates; from cycles, to buses, carpools, trains – just about anything that reduces the number of cars on the road, at least once a week! Here are 5 unexpected benefits of Carpooling – that would definitely make your life much easier:   #1 Lesser worries about fuel Hikes...
