The Logical Traveller | Team sRide speaks

A traveler is a person of unlimited dreams, and all these dreams are lived through the journey he makes. The dreams of discovering new and exotic places, the dream of meeting new and interesting people and the bigger dream of making life’s journey worthwhile, is everything he cares about. While travelling should be on everyone’s list, budgeting plays a very important part too. You can’t manage frequent travels if you go all out splurging on one destination. Take it from team sRide, we travel a lot – sometimes for fun, sometimes for work and sometimes to meet you all! We always tell you why you need to carpool and talk about traffic, so we decided to share our personal travel handbook to show you we don’t just propagate a cause, but also keep up with it. So before you make the next trip, here are a few things to keep in mind to make it fun – not just for you, but also your bank balance! 1. Carry ample change Everyone carries their cards around, but carrying that much cash is just calling trouble. But you should always have ample change with you. In a place that you haven’t visited before, it is pointless to be relying on others to tend you change. Carry money in all denominations to be on the safer side! “Even though I was carrying sufficient tenners, that Rs 7 tea became nothing short of a life crisis.” Neha, travelled to Jaipur 2. Choose smart travelling If you’re on a budget trip or plan to splurge in some shopping from the destination, choose to travel...

sRide Recurring Rides to make carpooling easier! 

At sRide we are constantly trying to make carpooling a regular commute option for people. And we know what making something ‘regular’ requires – simplifying it. Most of our users love the app and want to carpool everyday, but their work routines often result in them forgetting about posting their return ride requests. Not just does this result in them missing out on a ride, but also negates the efforts they make through the week to do their part in making the environment cleaner and greener! Knowing that our users wanted to carpool regularly and be a part of a bigger change in the environment, we did our part by making the going simpler. Exactly why we have now launched Recurring Rides. Recurring Rides on sRide The Recurring Rides feature allows the user to add their daily commute preferences from his office to home. Since the time of commute on most days is almost the same for most people, users can now simply post their ride preferences just once and the app generates rides automatically daily. And daily rides being generated in the app makes finding matches and ridesharing really easy. It basically allows you to send a request as soon as possible or much in advance, making sure you never miss a ride! Here’s how Recurring Rides is making carpooling a breeze for our users and why you need to try it too! 1. Never miss a ride because you forgot to post   With rides generated automatically, there is absolutely no need for setting reminders! Now never miss a ride just because you forgot putting up a...
Smart people carpool. Do you?

Smart people carpool. Do you?

One of the major issues that has become a constant topic of discussion, is making the world a better place to live in. Everyone has a different take on how to get there. But what’s become common is that internal drive to reach their desired destination. Today people are constantly talking about environment issues and what part they can play to make things better. And if you’ve been keeping a tab on these conversations, you’ll know how aggressively they’re being followed up! Don’t believe us? Take a look at the massively followed Car Free Thursday – Hyderabad. People from all walks of life, all age groups, are actually getting out there to promote the one thing that has only been a distant dream all these years when it comes to ways of saving the environment – carpooling. Even though there are still a lot many out there who aren’t too comfortable with the idea of going green in totality, hard hitting facts are definitely striking a chord with today’s generation. Most of them revolving around environment, health and finances. Here are some numbers our research in two major IT cities got us: Pune There are almost 6 lakh people who travel to and fro from Hinjewadi for work. About 70% of these people travel by their own car – alone. When 10% of these people carpooled once a week, there was about 1,57,500 kg of carbon dioxide reduction in the environment. That is about 7,560 ton of carbon dioxide avoided per year. Hyderabad There are almost 4 lakh people in the HITEC City in Hyderabad. About 60% of these...
Carpooling in Hyderabad is easing traffic. What about your city?

Carpooling in Hyderabad is easing traffic. What about your city?

The city of Nizams is filled with beauty and grace. There are two facades of the royal city and both these faces intrigue us beyond comparison. Where on one hand the historical monuments have several stories to be told, the newer and swankier Hyderabad stories are all about corporate functioning and IT. Cyderabad – The new Hyderabad! Just like any other growing metropolitan city, Hyderabad is also gripped in the claws of the ever growing traffic concerns. But, what’s the solution? While the traffic and civic management authorities have proposed many alternate commute options, the current situation has half the city dug up for metros and construction of flyovers. The only thing that has emerged as a relief amidst all the chaos is carpooling. While more and more people in the city have adopted this new trend of commuting, it still has a long way to go. But apart from being just an alternate commute option, it is helping decrease the traffic by manifolds – and the people residing here aren’t the last to observe this. Carpooling in Hyderabad With daily travel becoming a hassle more than anything else, carpooling is actually helping people wade through those dug up roads without ending up spending hours on it. It is obvious that carpooling not just reduces the stress of having to drive solo from one point to the other, but also reduces traffic jams. When you carpool, you’re not just sharing a ride, but also the cost of traveling – including the fuel! With Car Free Thursday – Hyderabad picking up in the city, even youngest of the lot can...
11 Reasons Carpooling is Much More Than What You Thought

11 Reasons Carpooling is Much More Than What You Thought

Communities across the globe are brainstorming to find out newer and better ways of commuting. Blame it on the traffic or the increasing pollution – but Gen Y is actually becoming smarter. And what’s coming up as a growing trend is, “carpooling”. Here’s taking a look at why the trend is catching up! 1. Money Money my Honey The list begins with the most obvious and logical reason. When you carpool, you share travelling as well as fuel costs on the way. End the month with a loaded wallet and a smiling bank account, because you saved some greens by going green. *Smiles* 2. The Green League Here’s a shout-out to all those who ever fantasized about being a super-hero, even if it is only for a day. Join the International Green Brigade and contribute towards procuring our precious environment. Low emissions, more greenery, better life. Who’s up for it? 3. Be a Social Bee Let bees be our social inspiration because, why not! While you’re saving the world and some money, it is time to become the social bee you were back in school. Share a ride, meet new people and make new friends. After all sharing a few experiences is only going to reap you lifelong benefits – personally and professionally! 4. Don’t be a Slave Driver It is proven that driving is not everybody’s cup of tea. Most people don’t even like driving – they in fact wish to be a passenger and enjoy the view. Be that passenger if you are not much into peddle-pushing. Carpooling lets you have a seat and reach your place...
