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...

A sneak peek at the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon event

What began as a thought, took shape recently and it became a social movement of sort. We at sRide, were proud to be a part of the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon, which concluded recently and we are cherishing every moment of it. We took forward our aim to help the society and protect the environment by encouraging the practice of carpooling across cities – Chennai, Pune and Hyderabad. We have been conducting events, competitions and other trending campaigns to put forward our point, but the one day we could actually talk to people about it was at the Airtel Hyderabad Marathon. And we actually made it a point to reward all those who helped us spread the cause. (We were there on the 28th, 29th and the 30th of August) With social media and selfies being this generations go-to, we actually ran a campaign for the same a week in advance! You can see all the madness and fun we had on our Facebook profile as well as our Twitter feed. We received a whooping response from our social media campaign and multitude of aspirants pledged to carpool while going to and fro from the marathon. Here’s taking a look at the marathon and what we did during those days! The event was just as expected – it was brimming with a never ending energy! And we at booth #36 on the registration days had some crazy fun with the sRide car our team made. We know it sounds crazy, but that’s how the whole campaign was -crazy but FUN! Looks fun right? We got more! Yes we even gave...

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....
