RYDE | World’s First Real-time Carpooling App | Behind the Drive – Sebastian New
RYDE is a community based initiative that uses mobile and geo-location technology to match riders, who request for rides, with drivers going the same way. At the end of the ride, riders donate cash directly to drivers to defray the cost of the trip. RYDE does not take a cut from the donation but charges a booking fee, through a credit card transaction, to facilitate the match.

04 Nov Behind the Drive – Sebastian New


1) Share with us your most memorable carpool experience (or share a few!)

My most memorable experience was fetching a handicapped person from her place to the Sports Stadium. Although I waited for her more than 15 minutes of my time, I felt happy that I managed to give a ride since it is not easy getting a cab at a remote location in Singapore.

2) Why do you want to win the car?

I was not actually aiming for the car but more focused on the concept of carpooling. I am glad that RYDE has chosen me to be part of this competition! I can only try my best to clock as many rides as I can during the final 2 months of the year. Winning is not as important for me. I’m just glad I can do my part is reducing my carbon footprint.
