About MyCarpoolApp

So, you are a group of people who share a ride to work, university, etc. You have a schedule, but it is dynamic, flexible, and sometimes even changes at the last minute.
Do these issues sound familiar to you?

Who rides?

You want to know anytime a group member will join the next ride. There are changes to the regular schedule, since Zoe is ill this week and you want to notify the others that you have to work overtime tonight and that you won't return home with them.

Who drives?

Whose turn is it to drive tomorrow? Is his/her car big enough for all planned riders? Has the driver seen the planned ride together?

How to share costs?

Most carpools aim at fair cost sharing for their joint rides based on best approximations of real costs, avoiding unfair economic benefits for the drivers. Factors such as fuel consumption, current fuel prices, tollways and discounts have to be taken into account.

How it works

The client app on your smartphone, tablet or PC is only part of the story. Moreover, there is a server on the Internet that stores and processes the data of your carpool. Therefore it is necessary that your device is online to use MyCarpoolApp.

Request your rides.

Every day or at least once per week, and of course every time there is an unexpected change in your schedule, every member of your carpool marks the checkboxes corresponding to the scheduled trips requesting when they want to ride and which route they want to take. This takes only a few seconds. Moreover, adding unscheduled special trips is easy. You will be prompted to store your changes on the server.


Check the planning. Confirm or modify it.

Before every joint ride, the drivers should access the latest planning from the server, which is based on the individual requests, and check for last-minute changes. You may select another driver and add or remove riders, if they asked you to do that on their behalf.
