Benefits for drivers, passengers and the environment

SAVE MONEY

Drivers recover up to 100% of their urban travel costs - that's an average of £3,000 a year! Earnings are tax free and does not require special insurance or licenses.
Passengers pay public transport prices for door to door travel.

CONVENIENCE

No need to advertise your journeys or long searching for suitable drivers - we do the hard work for you! Unlike other carpooling apps, using GreenRide is practically effortless. 

Drivers simply enter their destination when they drive and we match them with passengers going the same way now.  Drivers even get in app satellite navigation to guide them

REDUCE ROAD CONGESTION AND POLLUTION

With an average 1.1 people per car journey, Exeter’s only on-demand carsharing service is a great way to get more people in to fewer cars.  That means less congestion and cleaner Exeter air.

Congestion in Exeter is a big problem.

During the commuter period Exeter has the busiest  roads in the UK.  Average speeds are just 4.6mph and drivers spend 25% of driving time stuck in congestion.

Exeter drivers spend nearly 25 hours a year stuck in traffic.  GreenRide can remove over 3,000 cars from Exeter's daily traffic by increasing occupancy rates from 1.1 to just 1.2.

Running costs for drivers in Exeter are around £3,000 a year. Drivers can recover all of this using the GreenRide app to share their empty car seats.  Amounts received are based on mileage and GreenRide make sure no profit is being made by drivers. This is to ensure journeys are covered by existing insurance and are not taxable.  For passengers, this means prices are comparable to public transport.
