Carpooling: A New Experience

The Daily Commute is a corporate dynamic car pooling website which offers ,real time, relevant matches via the Internet. An anonymous SMS notification system uniquely allows instant contact between registered users. Unlike traditional car pooling sites, which require you trawl through thousands of possibly irrelevant and out-of-date rideshare posts, The Daily Commute only returns matches that are relevant to you. Working 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this effective car pooling system ensures even last minute requests can be handled swiftly.

The Daily Commute is based in Melbourne and Geelong, Australia, but is operational in 27 countries around the world, including the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. Currently, it only operates in English.

Safe Alternative To Public Transport

The Daily Commute provides a safe and viable alternative to public transport. It allows for long-term car sharing arrangements or flexible one-off rideshares, similar to catching a bus, train, or taxi, in order to reduce the amount of congestion on the roads. As safety is the primary concern of The Daily Commute, the following elements have been implemented to the site and its corporate car pooling system
  • A feedback system similar to that of eBay
  • The ability to block users for any reason
  • Registration via the workplace to maintain privacy
  • Accountability of users to their employers

Car pooling Benefits: Save money and Offset Carbon Emissions

Did you know, based on a 6-cylinder car travelling between Geelong and Melbourne CBD that just 2 users would save $6,500 and 12 tonnes of CO2? Unbelievably, 100 users would save $325,000 and nearly 600 tonnes of CO2 and 1,000 users would save $3.25 million and nearly 6,000 tonnes of CO2!

For small and large businesses looking to offset carbon emissions, it is an ideal solution and offers employees a useful and valid benefit: free car pooling!

As a car pool driver, you can recoup your travelling costs. Passengers reimburse the driver their share of tolls, parking, and petrol. Similarly, rideshare passengers pay less than what they would if they were driving alone, so it's a win-win situation! Use The Daily Commute fare calculator to work what to charge or pay.
