I want end-to-end connectivity. Will carpool/bike pool provide that?
Most carpool and bike pool websites and apps across the world work on the basic funda of the similar route. If you’re traveling in the same direction, then, might as well take other passengers. That is solely how carpool and bike pool came into existence.
However, while going to work in the morning or returning from office to home, almost all of us do not want to spend more time searching for rides. We find the quickest available solution whether it is a cab ride or public transportation and carry on with our journey.

I feel hesitant to travel with strangers. Is it safe?
Why do you think there is so much hesitation among people to try carpool and bike pool. All of us face a little hesitation in entering a stranger’s car. We don’t know anything about this persona and on top of it sharing a journey with a bunch of unknown people is certainly anxiety provoking trigger.

I don’t feel comfortable. I feel carpool/bike pool more of as leverage than service
We enjoy taking cab rides because there is a professional service associated with it. You book a cab, settle down, listen to your own music without the necessity to talk to anyone and pay once you reach your location. In carpool/bike pool, it feels more of a leverage, a sort of favor that the ride-giver is doing on the ride taker and thus restricting the latter to be the master or boss of their own journey.
Quick Ride carpool/bike pool is a professional -transactional (Points) based service
Nobody wants to take unnecessary favors from strangers. That is why carpool and bike pool on Quick Ride do not allow cash transactions. Quick Ride app in their effort to make this a fully professional service has implemented a transactional factor in their app.
The users need not solicit themselves in cash transactions. The transaction is done through Quick Ride Points (1 Point = 1 Rupee). These points can be redeemed for fuel costs if you’re a ride giver and part of route sharing. Thus, giving you the confidence of utilizing carpool and bike pool as pure professional services through Quick Ride.
Will I get Quick Ride as and when I want similar to a cab?
This is the reason why there is so much dependency on cabs because of how comfortable it has made our lives. No matter, what time we know there will a cab ready. And it’s because of our this relaxed attitude, that cab aggregators have now started charging us such hefty amounts. Because, where else will you go?
