sRide Carpool: Corporate Green Initiatives in 2015

sRide ended year 2015 on a high note bringing a positive change to traffic conditions in Hyderabad & Pune. Not only did sRide create an impact on the environment but also a special space with its users, most of who are from different corporate within these 2 cities. These users, whom we call as ‘Power Users’, are thrilled to use sRide as a medium to commute on a daily basis and have made sRide a part of their daily routine. Travelling twice a day to office and back was a everyday challenge but with sRide app, they can not only commute with their friends and colleague but also with people from other companies in near vicinity thus creating a new social circle. A lot of effort went into creating this high density carpooling environment and it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of various GREEN TREMS and corporate CSR groups. sRide worked closely with many such teams and created a strong traction among carpoolers. As of today: Dec 31st 2015 , sRide has users from across 887 companies who are using sRide platform. A brief look into some of the major events we did in 2015: 1. IGATE, Hyderabad sRide’s 1st Green Carpooling event of sRide in IGATE.

IGATE CSR patronage, took part in this Green Carpooling Initiative with great passion and helped to spread the word about carpooling in the all over the...
Joy Of Giving Back

Joy Of Giving Back

“Joy of Giving Back”: Its probably the most accomplishing joy and yet the most difficult to do. Most accomplishing because when you see someone enjoying what they never had, it’s a heartening sight & yet the most difficult because most of the times, we don’t know where to start that “Giving Back”. Most of us want to give back to the society from what we have & earned but we are not sure (or aware) of the medium. Whether it is sponsoring a child’s education or doing something for the city. Most of us talk about reducing pollution, traffic and bring greenery around us but how many of us even plant a tree all our life. “It’s just a matter of shifting little bit of focus and looking beyond what we do in our everyday life.” sRide Carpool is determined to bring few such changes in everyone’s life. Not only, it provides a platform to help people carpool which makes their commute easy & stress free, but it also helps to reduce traffic & pollution for the city. By carpooling together, people can achieve as much as “Divide by 4” in terms of reducing the number of cars on the roads. If even 20% of the people adopt carpooling, we are looking at a significant drop of 10%-15% in overall traffic on a daily basis. Not only this, sRide Carpool has also initiated a drive to allow its car owners to donate part (or full) or their carpool earned money to CRY (Child Rights & You). This bring a double benefit to the society – Not only can you...
Ashish Nigam – Carpools daily to take cars off the road in Pune

Ashish Nigam – Carpools daily to take cars off the road in Pune

How many of us have planted even 1 tree in our life till date? Ashish Nigam has saved 8 trees in less than 3 months. Ashish Nigam resides in Pune & have been one of sRide’s early adopters. Ashish heard about sRide via social media & decided to give sRide a try. He is a car owner and wanted to try out carpooling on a platform that made carpooling easy rather than making it a challenge. Anyways, Pune traffic was challenging enough for his daily commute. As it turned out to be, Ashish did his first few rides with different people and he loved the concept. Not only, he was making new friends but was also doing his bit in reducing traffic & helping the environment. It is a common understanding that most of the people do carpooling for saving cost (financial benefit) But it does not hold true for Ashish… That is something what makes sRide so proud of Ashish Nigam. He has taken an initiative, he has been doing it for months & he does it with passion. Not to forget, he has saved 8 TREES till date. Kudos to you Ashish!!!! sRide Carpool is proud of...

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! 

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...
