Description

Piggyback is a dynamic ridesharing application that runs on recent phones. Piggyback’s objective is to share car-related expenses between users, while reducing everybody’s carbon footprint in the process.

Our goal is to rationalize the way we use our cars today. We may be heading toward a petrol-free civilization, but for now, we’re stuck with oil. According to different studies, the occupancy rate for car varies on average between 1.1 to 1.2 passenger per car. There is huge room for improvement.

In Piggyback, there are only two possible scenarios:

1. You’re a driver with available seats, willing to pick up people to reduce your costs

When you start Piggyback, entering your destination will make your car available for searching by users who are looking for a car.

If people are interested in your destination, they can send you a ride request that you are free to accept or reject (according to user ratings, detour length, you mood etc.)

Picking up passengers will induce rerouting for you most of the time, this is why Piggyback will take such factors into account to compensate you on the detour part of your trip (pick up and drop off locations).

If you successfully pick up passengers, costs (calculated with our home-made algorithm) will be shared evenly between everyone inside the car on the common portion of the car trip.

After a successful trip, you may rate the passengers you picked up, or even add them as favorites.

Finally, Piggyback can map your driving patterns to help you find passengers more easily and more regularly (on your daily commute, for instance).

 

2. You want to be a passenger to reduce your carbon footprint and save money.

You may want to do this because you don’t personally own a car, you think gas has become too expensive, you’re…
