Carpooling in Singapore
Car-sharing, ride-sharing, lift-sharing in Singapore: So you travel to and fro work daily, taking the same driving route, bus or MRT route (for the lucky few, cycle or walk). Now how do you get to your workplace without getting too frazzled or squeezing with the crowd in public transport?
Carpooling offers commuters a more direct, more comfortable, and more time-efficient way to commute to work. For owners of vehicles, ridesharing or carpooling, allows them to recover some of the journey cost to pay for petrol and road toll. Not only do you get to know your neighbours better, you get a few more supper ‘ka-kis’ (friends)!
Through new technology such as mobile app and website, passengers looking for a ride and drivers offering rides can be aggregated into shared transport. If there are alot more passengers than drivers, buses can be chartered (“Bus-pooling”).
