General Motors in China have developed an app to enable their 700 employees to share rides with their colleagues and combine their “employee carpooling program with intelligent mobile technology”.
According to carscoops.com the program allows drivers to input their preferred route, departure time and number of seats available, while riders will submit their commuter requests. The app will then match the riders with a list of potential drivers.
In charge of GM China’s Urban Active Projects is Vivian Yu, who said that “The employee carpooling pilot program merges the Internet with intelligent mobile technology. It will not only benefit our team members, but also enable us to test software systems in everyday usage scenarios”.
The right move for sustainable mobility.
