GreenPool is an on-demand peer-peer car pooling platform built only for mobile users. Our solution focuses primarily on the safety aspect of ride sharing.It can be used for daily commute or long distance travel.
Urban cities today face an immeasurable problem of congestion on the roads and within parking lots. Business parks and IT companies employ large teams to handle their transportation despite the sheer number of cars coming into their campus on a daily basis. GreenPool aims to make better use of this transportation real estate of private car owners which is today being unused, by helping like minded people travel together. GreenPool has a unique & powerful ride matching algorithm which will provide optimized ride matches.
GreenPool is an on-demand peer-peer carpooling platform, built on the model of sharing economy. We have introduced a simplified carpool rate card for easy cost calculation and settlement. This rate card takes into account the annual maintenance cost of the car and the fuel cost.
Ride settlement takes place through PayTM. After the trip has been completed, the amount is automatically debited from the passenger’s e-wallet and is credited to the car owner’s wallet. GreenPool reserves the right to charge up to 15% commission.

4. How is cost calculated?
There are two methods for 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 travelled. Our system uses GPS and data connection to read and store the locations in our 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. 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 pricing chart provided in our website.
Slab-Rate Fixed Per Km charges This option has fixed rates for given distances. Please visit our pricing chart 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 you can decide which cost calculation method you want to choose for the trips you offer.As a passenger 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, passenger will be able to view the projected cost based on the distance calculated between the start and end points of the passenger
