RYDE | World’s First Real-time Carpooling App | Behind the Ride – Renice’s Take on Carpooling
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.

12 Jan Behind the Ride – Renice’s Take on Carpooling



Hi Renice! Thanks for agreeing to be part of this interview.

Maybe you could start by telling us a little bit more about yourself?

I’m a student, taking my degree in marketing currently.

Where do you live? What are your commuting patterns in the week?

I live in the North side of Singapore. If I have to leave my house early in the morning, I will tend to book a RYDE the night before. I will cab as my last resort.

How did you know about RYDE? How did it change your life?

I saw an advertisement on Facebook so I downloaded it and gave it a try. To my surprise, my request got accepted the first time I used the app. RYDE has made my life more convenient as I can pre-plan my journey and get to school on time. Moreover, it has helped me save a lot on cab fares and I can meet people from all walks of life.

What was your most memorable carpooling experience?

I guess it would be my first RYDE experience. I was sent to school in an Audi!

Would you support a Singapore start-up?

Why not?
