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

02 Aug Behind the Ride – Sherry’s Take on Carpooling


Hello Sherry! Thanks for agreeing to be part of this interview.

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

Hi, I am Sherry and a dog lover.

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

I live at Bedok. I station in a community club and need to work on shifts and run around for work events during weekends. Thus, I need to travel quite a fair bit due to my job nature.

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

I knew it from my sister, whom strongly recommends it to me. It is an awesome app! It allows me to save on cab fare and meet some real cool people during the trip.

What was your most memorable carpooling experience?

I had a driver who had her dog’s picture in the car and that got us chatting happily on our love for dogs. We even plan to meet at a dog cafe one day! A few days after the RYDE, I heard from my sister that she had a RYDE driver who told her about how she picked a rider who shared similar interests. We both realized later that it was the same driver who picked us! It was quite a coincidence.

Would you support a Singapore start-up?

Definitely. It’s environmentally friendly to carpool!
