Carpooling or ridesharing is the latest cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to travel in urban areas. With increasing traffic problems and fewer people inclined towards using the public transportation network, carpooling with rPool is a safe, convenient, and eco-smart way to ease your travel woes. Share empty seats with verified riders traveling on the same route, decrease the number of cars on the road, and in turn bring down travel cost as rideshare is also about cost-share.
When it comes to metro capitals like Delhi and surrounding NCR areas, people spend a substantial amount of time in traveling from their residence to work and back in bumper-to-bumper traffic conditions. With every seat shared while carpooling, an extra vehicle is taken off the road thus reducing traffic and eventually, the travel time spent on the journey. Car-sharing apps like rPool are a boon during the odd-even days in Delhi when vehicles are compulsorily taken off the road on alternate days based on the vehicle registration number to help improve air quality and reduce pollution levels.
Connaught Place, Saket, Udyog Vihar, Cyber City-Gurugram, Aerocity, Greater Noida, Rajendra Place, Nehru Place, Mayapuri, and Okhla are some of the busiest destinations for office goers in Delhi and NCR. The concentration of corporate offices, industrial zones, business parks, and IT hubs in these areas necessitates carpooling along the route. With riders traveling on the same route, carpooling is a great option to institute in Delhi.
To find and share rides, all you need to do is download the redBus rideshare app, rPool, on your smartphone and follow the simple instructions to register yourself as a rider. Once your ID is verified, you can start offering or requesting rides for the route that’s selected. rPool is a safe and secure online carpooling platform meant for working professionals where their corporate email IDs are used to verify the user. The contact information of the ride giver and ride taker is protected by the phone number masking feature enabled on chat and calls through the app. With regular checks and verifications of riders by redBus, mandatory photographs, and options to configure social networking accounts, users can make an informed choice before connecting with the co-rider. GPS trackers and registration details of the vehicles and the rider adds to the safety features of the ridesharing app. The pre-set point system is used to transfer the points from the rPool wallet of the ride taker to the rPool wallet of the ride giver for a cashless and hassle-free transaction. Recharge the rPool wallet by using net banking, credit or debit cards, Google Pay or PayTM.
Finding and offering rideshare is very simple. To offer rides, login to the redBus app, submit trip details with start and end locations, and the app will notify you with details of riders looking to share a ride on the same route. Invite the rider to join, pick them up at a mutually agreed upon pick-up point with the help of live tracking or online secured call/chat, and drop them off at their designated location.
Finding a ride is equally easy, login to the redBus app, select rPool, enter your pick-up and destination details, check the list of riders offering carpool, and send them an invite to join. Once you’ve been picked up, start the trip on the app and when you reach your destination, end the trip. The rPool points are directly transferred from your rPool wallet to the ride giver’s rPool wallet. Regular trips on the same route can be pre-scheduled to pair you up with your favorite 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.

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.
