Bike pool or bike-sharing is the new path to an economical, fast, and sustainable way of traveling. With an increasing population in urban towns and cities, vehicular traffic is reaching an all-time high almost every day. Delhi has been featured in local newspapers for being the most polluted city in the country. The air quality of Delhi has been deteriorating steadily and this has become a serious cause for concern. The health of local residents has been severely affected as a number of them have begun to show signs of various dust-related lung problems.
With the odd-even rule put in place, people are looking at other options to reduce the number of vehicles on the road. Bike pooling has become one remedy and has begun to show results as well. rPool by redBus has gained popularity among the people of Delhi as the user-friendly app has made bike sharing or bike pooling convenient and safe.
There are a number of areas in Delhi where traffic can get quite dense. As a traffic reduction initiative, people need to do what they can to reduce the number of vehicles in these areas. Public transportation is one way to go about it. The other is bike pooling. Here are some areas in Delhi where bike pooling has become quite essential in reducing the amount of traffic on the streets:
Use your unoccupied pillion seat to bike pool with redBus's rPool bike-sharing services and avail rPool fuel points for every kilometer of your ride that you share with a fellow commuter on the same route. Use those rPool fuel points at the fuel station or for online shopping. rPool is cost-effective and safe for both ride takers and ride givers.
The capital state of India, Delhi, is the most populated place in India. Apart from its historical value, Delhi is famous for its dense population and traffic jams. Though the Delhi Metro covers the entire NCR region, metros are tough to catch during rush hour. Bike pooling is the perfect solution for Delhi roads where streets are quite jam-packed due to inconsistent parking and pedestrians.
My experience with rPool has been amazing and I hope they continue providing such amazing service to the community and I appreciate the effort put together to achieve this.
It was really wonderful.
rPool is an online carpool platform that connects Driver(s) (herein after referring to those who offer rides) and Rider(s) (herein after referring to those who are searching for rides). Both parties herein after referred to as “Riders”.
Carpooling is a smart way to commute by sharing just one vehicle. A car owner, offers ride and chooses fellow riders who travel along the same route. In addition to being a more affordable way to commute, it also helps the environment by reducing the number of cars on the road and bringing down the pollution.
rPool is not a cab service. It is an online carpool platform that connects Driver(s) and Rider(s). rPool caters exclusively to working professionals, who are verified riders.
Private car owners desirous of offering a Trip to other professionals traveling on the routes of daily commute will register on the rPool platform and offer rides or invite registered Riders. Alternately, Riders who find Drivers on their route of commute can approach the Driver to ride in their vehicle. In both cases, subject to the approval of the Driver or Rider, both will be paired to ride together. When the offer is mutually accepted, the Users connect with each other through the redBus app. The chat and calls are secure as they don’t reveal the phone number of the Driver or Rider. Once the Trip is completed, the rPool Points agreed for the Trip are credited from the Rider’s rPool Wallet to Driver’s rPool Wallet.
rPool Wallet is a wallet provided to each User of the rPool, to seamlessly transact for each Trip provided and availed on redBus App.
As a part of your rPool Wallet, rPool Points allow riders to seamlessly transact for rides. Additionally, rPool Points can be redeemed for shopping cards or vouchers as agreed and provided by rPool. Currently, rPool allows redemption of rPool Points. Points can also be donated towards the planting of trees by the MakeMyTrip Foundation.
Users get to save more on every Trip by splitting the cost between fellow Users while making the best use of a single vehicle. rPool Users also contribute to making the city better by reducing the number of cars and resultantly reducing the pollution. Additionally, as rPool is a carpool exclusively for professionals one can network with fellow Users.
rPool is only open to professionals and we verify users through their corporate email. We ensure that all Users have their privacy protected by routing all calls and chats through our app where the phone numbers are not visible to either party.
A Recurring Trip allows a Driver, to auto-generate their daily commute (home to office and vice versa). This eliminates the need to post rides every day.
rPool allows you cancel a single Trip. If you won’t be available for a few days we recommend stopping the Recurring Ride until your return.
We are always here to help, in case of any issue do email us at rPool@redbus.in for any queries.
