As we move towards green fuels and electric modes of transportation, one of the best ways of tackling pollution and traffic in Pune is bike pooling. The number of bikes in Pune are over 27 Lakh. Imagine tapping into that sort of resource to reduce traffic on the streets. Bike-sharing helps reduce the number of vehicles on the road and thereby helps reduce CO2 emissions. People can even save on fuel costs with bike-sharing apps like rPool.
rPool offers the best bike pooling and carpooling tool that a number of metros in India desperately require.
Pune is a big city that’s slowly becoming a hub for students and shopaholics, and this leads to an increase in traffic. There are many places where bike pooling becomes a viable mode of transport. The most common issue faced by people who use bike pooling apps is that they don’t get rides for bike share easily. Thankfully, rPool has solved this issue. Some of the places that would require bike-sharing apps like rPool to help reduce traffic are:
Pune is known for its traffic issues that leave hundreds of people stranded on the roads. Bike pooling is a very beneficial initiative to reduce traffic if not prevent it altogether. Bike-sharing is a great way to give back to the environment and help in reducing the number of vehicles on the road. There are emerging bike pooling apps such as rPool that facilitate bike-share options. You save money, make new connections, and get to travel to work in a more efficient way while doing a small part to make your environment better!

Good thought by redBus. redBus is a friendly platform for commuters.
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.
