Nowadays, commuting from one place to another has turned into a substantial issue. With an enormous rise in the population of Kolkata over the last few years, the number of vehicles has soared at an equal rate. This has consequently led to deterring pollution levels, crammed roads, increased fuel consumption, and many more issues that people have to deal with on a daily basis. Hence, in a quest to tackle all these issues in one go, bike pooling has now become a one-stop answer to these problems. Bike share on the redBus bike pooling app is defined as a pick-up and drop-off service that’s offered to a customer. It is a ride-sharing app that can be used to either offer or look for a ride on a particular route. This not only reduces the overall travel cost of both the ride taker and the ride giver but also reduces fuel consumption, road congestion, pollution levels, and more. Hence, bike-sharing is the future!Popular Locations in Kolkata.

Being a densely populated downtown city, it goes without saying that Kolkata possesses a huge number of private and public vehicles that operate on a daily basis. Bike pooling seems like a plausible solution for traffic issues and the deteriorating air quality as well. Apart from it being cost-effective, it solves any last-minute commuting problems. Also, a bike is usually the fastest way of traveling from one place to another. And the fact that the bike-sharing app can help reduce fuel costs is just an added benefit when you use this tool.

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.
