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...
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...

Let’s make carpooling a trend in India now!

What’s the first thing that comes to your mind when we talk about modern India? Undoubtedly, the beaming IT sector and the hustling modern cities! No matter how advanced the technologies get, we haven’t really gotten over the daily issues like traffic, long queues, etc. And honestly, we, ourselves, are the ones to blame! With fixed routines being a common practice, we often tend to stick to what we do a little too much – no variety, no experimenting – just because it ‘works for us’. We never really deviate from our schedules and when we do, we often just end up cribbing about it! Especially, the working professionals. While there are somethings we can’t really help, like the queues at a popular bakery, there are things we can do to make life competitively easier – case in point being, traffic. How? Well, you can’t really go about demanding expansion of roads or construction of highways. But ditching a few taboos, can really go a long way! Cycling to a nearby store isn’t going to deem you as low standard, carpooling isn’t going to make you sound like someone trying to save too much money, and walking till the next block definitely doesn’t make you seem like someone who doesn’t have a car! Here’s talking about the common notions Indians have around commuting: The “showoff” trend! Yes, we Indians are big time show offs – you might or might not want to agree to it, but that is the truth! Owning a car is considered an ‘achievement’ in our society and driving to work is considered as a boost...

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...
