Getz Carpooling Solution
Summary
Getz is a carpooling application which matches like-minded people in a car. Drivers and potential passengers enter their destination into the mobile app and the program matches them up so drivers can pick passengers up and share the cost along the way. It’s about sharing your commute, not sharing a taxi.
Problem
TRAFFIC / Air Pollution, Noise pollution
COST / Gas, Insurance, Parking, Toll Charges
AIR POLLUTION
Opportunity
In my research I realized that people don’t feel secure with certain ride sharing/carpooling applications. They also find boring to sit in a car with a stranger. They want to decide who are they going to ride with. So I wanted to design an app to help those problems. I feel carpooling shouldn't be boring when they matched by their interests.
Target Audience
People who drive in rush hours for work or school purposes.
Solution
Less cars in the roads - Less traffic
Reduce commute time using HOV lane
Cheaper Rides: Share the cost of gas, insurance, parking and toll
