Bike-sharing is the ultimate solution to the emerging traffic problems in urban cities in India that require a number of solutions. Bike-sharing decreases the overall number of vehicles on the road, making traffic flow smoothly. Using rPool also helps in lowering carbon emissions by a considerable margin. Contrary to the peak hour combustion of public transportation and traffic jams on the road, bike pooling allows for a much safer, faster, and cheaper way of regular point A to B commute. Fewer vehicles on the roads ensure that these roads are not choked with traffic and this, in turn, keeps the environment clean. rPool is a decent way to save money while simultaneously taking care of the environment.

Mumbai city is the financial capital of India and one of the busiest cities in the country. With a population of over 18 million residents, Mumbai records the highest number of daily commuters than any other Indian metropolitan city. During rush hour, the city has seen traffic congestion on popular roads go up to 66% and this percentage can rise above 100% due to weather conditions. Slow-moving traffic affects public transportation while metros and monorails are available on selected routes. Catching a train or a bus during rush hour is almost impossible for some. Bike-sharing apps like rPool resolve these issues. Some of the benefits of bike pooling are:
It is an easy way to transport. It is comfortable to travel in a car.
It is a good way to reduce traffic and pollution. It is also efficient and easy to use.
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.
