GreenRide  Real-time Ride-sharing Mobile Application

GreenRide is a real-time ride sharing that utilizes the already existent transport infrastructure by allowing people to commute their routing journeys while being rewarded as form of incentive for their carbon emission reduction. Application users are not considered full/part-time drivers as per they share their routing information by their consent. By raising the occupancy level of private vehicle; ride sharing will decrease the number of vehicles and present enormous potential for positive societal impact with respect to pollution, congestion, and energy consumption.

Targeted Users

University students/employees, large corporates, ministries and government institutions that want to motivate their employees to share a ride to their workplace and are eager to reduce their carbon footprint as one of their annual goals. Consequently, corporates would motivate their employees to share a ride to their workplace through using the GreenRide application. An organization can decide on how participating employees are going to be rewarded. This could be additional credit for in-house cafeterias or maybe even a day off, for instance. By default, the drivers and the passengers would get rewarded in GreenRide tokens (GRT) which they could spend outside of their offices as well.
