Kolkata is the city capital of West Bengal and the gateway of East India. The city is one of India’s metropolitan cities, yet Kolkata still holds its cultural and traditional charm.
The city is extremely important as the Eastern part of the country heavily depends on Kolkata. Major textile, IT, and commercial hubs are located in the city which attracts many outsiders into the city for livelihood.
From tradesmen to academicians, wage earners to suit and tie workers, the city is home to thousands of working professionals. However, the increase in population in the city has worsened the traffic and air pollution to a large scale in recent years.
The recurring traffic problem is growing so rapidly that even after having various modes of public transportation this traffic problem is taking a turn for the worse! Traffic congestion does not only affect an individual but it also affects how a city functions daily. And here comes the option of carpooling.
What is Quick Ride Carpool
Launched in September 2015 Quick Ride is a bike pool and carpooling mobile app that connects people traveling in the same direction in real-time. Carpooling is the practice of different individuals coming together to use a single car for commuting. This helps reduce traffic and carbon emissions by decreasing the number of vehicles on the road.

Carpooling is a very smart way to cover fuel prices.
