For carpool to sustain we need to have a balance between Ride Givers and Ride Takers. We can go on and on and talk about the benefits of carpool but it will be in vain if a user cannot find a ride match. Finding a successful ride match has become very low because many of the carpoolers stopped due to work from home or they just forgot in their daily routine.
How to increase ride match(s)? Well, there is a solution to it. Expand the community. We need your help in expanding the Quick Ride Carpool community. So that your carpool experience is smoother both as a Ride Giver and Ride Taker.
As much as we want to encourage carpooling, we would like you to be an ambassador for Quick Ride, we would like you to follow these steps to help the community to find better ride matches.
Old is Gold
Remember your old carpool gang and neighbors who you used to carpool? Yes, will it not be more fun to meet them again in a carpool. Have a check with the carpoolers with whom you used to share rides, tell them that your travelling to office and home and if they are also travelling to office and home, ask them to carpool because who knows them better than us, it’s you! Woohoo! you got your best match to burst your stress on the boring roads.
A small reminder can help you and the mission to reduce 1 million cars from the road. Yes, never forget the contribution our carpoolers making towards the earth.
New today, but Gold someday
Be it a newbie at office, or a neighbor who you know. Refer more people to the community, and educate them about carpooling and how it can bring change to them and the environment.
Introduce them to carpool.
Carpool is still new in India and not many of us practice carpool. People may be hesitant to change their old ways but there is no harm in letting people know about carpooling. Some might be excited and willing to carpool for their daily commute.
If you know a person in your society, locality or company who drives to work alone every day then you can go up to her/him and share the idea about carpool. The same for ride givers as well, if anyone you know takes the same route as you travel by other mode transport then you can ask them to carpool and join your ride. However, if you are going to be unprofessional and disrespectful then it is best that you don’t carpool.
Points you don’t want to miss out while explaining about Carpool:
Economical for both Ride Giver and Ride Taker.
Ride takers can save a lot of money and time as well. Taking a cab every day can be expensive. The price you pay for a bus is the same amount you give for carpooling.
Ride givers, do we even need to mention fuel price? Carpool may not cover your full fuel expense but it will surely earn upto Rs 10000/month which can be redeemed for fuel.
Good for the environment.
You must be a responsible citizen if you are planning to opt for carpooling for a sustainable future. Well, most people don’t understand or know about the environment. You can make them understand the importance and the impact carpool can have on the environment.
Meeting like-minded people and expanding social circle.
What is better than learning from another person? Let people be aware that carpool is not just a way of commuting but it is also a platform where people can meet and expand their social circles.
More comfortable than a bus or auto.
Taking a cab is already expensive for a daily commute and it just adds to the traffic. Carpool will allow you to sit in a comfortable car at the same price as a crowded bus. Which sometimes you do not even get to sit. Auto is fairly comfortable but it can be expensive compared to public transport for a daily commute. And the price can get sky high during peak hours.
Not many people are aware of how many cars are on the road every day and how it affects the traffic. India has a population of 138 crores (1.38 billion) which is 18% of the world’s population, and we have only 2.4% land capacity then traffic is naturally going to be a problem. Let them understand how carpool can reduce traffic congestion.
Carpooling can be the solution to problems that we face individually and as a nation as well. It can save money, time, reduce traffic, prevent the emission of CO2 and encourage a sustainable future.
Carpool knits a community, bringing people together. And sometimes strangers can also become lifelong friends. Maybe your carpool mates can cheer you up after a bad day of work.
