Carpooling is a great and cost saving way of travelling – it saves money, reduces congestion and carbon emission on the roads. The volume of cars are increasing on the roads and highways with more than 70% of the vehicles made up of single occupant vehicles. Cutting down this number can greatly lessen traffic congestion and turn our journey into a smoother one.
Tripda (www.tripda.com.my), an online carpooling platform that connects drivers commuting with empty seats in their cars and passengers heading the same way is offering travellers an economical way of travelling with an opportunity to discover more places with its new travel search function.
Tripda’s new travel search feature enables users to explore many possible destinations you can carpool to, from wherever you are. Simply put, a user can just fill in his or her departure location and leave the destination field and date empty. This will allow the user to then browse through all the possible trips that he or she could take.
Victor Ang, Managing Director of Tripda in Malaysia and Singapore said “This new travel search feature will open up many more travel locations for our users. They will not only be able to use our platform for their day-to-day carpooling, but also plan for trips to new locations in the state or even in the country. This search feature will give them a chance to discover, explore and make new friends along the way.”
Carpooling using the Tripda platform is safe and fuss-free. Users can access Tripda via its website www.tripda.com.mydownload the app via the Apple App Store or Google Play. To enjoy the convenience of Tripda, users just have to register on the website or mobile app using their Facebook credentials in order to offer a ride or find a ride by entering the date of travel and departure location.
