There are two methods of Cost Calculation:
Real-time Cost Calculation method:
GreenPool’s intelligent RiCCE (Ride Cost Calculation Engine) calculates the ride cost for each rider accurately based on the distance traveled. Our system uses GPS & Data connection to read & store the locations in our powerful back-end servers. However, please note that in a rare case of failure of GPS or Data connection in Car Owner’s mobile, our system will calculate the distance point to point (rather than the route taken by the car). This might lead to some small loss to car owner as the actual route may be little longer than the point to point distance.
In order to overcome such unlikely situation of GPS Signal loss or Data Connection loss, it would be better if you note down the Odometer reading especially when you are sharing a long-distance trip. This may help you to amicably settle the ride based on the Cost Chart provided in our website.
Slab-Rate Fixed Per Km Charges:
This option has Fixed rates for given distances. Please visit our Cost page to get more information on the rates for each slab.
The rates are arrived based on the average cost of the cars registered with Greenpool. This method will be useful for Short-distance/Regular commute as you can avoid the hassle of Real-time GPS Tracking to calculate distance & cost.
As a Car Owner [Ride Giver] you can decide which Cost Calculation method you want to choose for the trips you offer.
As a Passenger [Ride Taker] you will be able to see the cost of the Trip for each of the Ride Match. In the case where Car Owners have chosen Real-Time Cost Calculation method, you will be able to view the Projected Cost based on the distance calculated between the start and end points of the passenger
