World's largest ridesharing network
Introduction

carpooling.com is the world's largest ridesharing network, transporting 1 million people a month across more than 40 countries. 

With just a few clicks, drivers can offer available seats and passengers can find or book a ride. The ridesharing iPhone app, ridesharing Android app and Facebook app provide easy access to 750,000 available rides. It is also possible for drivers and passengers to offer and book spare seats in a car using our booking system. Users review each other once a booking system lift is complete.

Carpooling has many benefits; reducing petrol consumption, saving money and helping to protect the environment. Thanks to carpooling.com, 1,000,000 tons of C02 and 500 million litres of gas have been saved; not counting the millions of savings by users and the thousands of friendships created (including more than 16 marriages!).
