Pune, July 2nd, 2019: Quick Ride, India’s leading car and bike-pooling application, today announced the successful registration of 2 million+ users on its platform across Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi-NCR, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, Kochi, and Kolkata. The Bengaluru based start-up entered the market in 2015 and today, it has emerged as the largest carpooling network in India with 2 million+ registered users of which 2 lakh+ users are from Pune.

Today, Pune is the third largest market after Bengaluru and Chennai and has witnessed a growth of 25% month-on-month over the last one and a half years.  Quick Ride has completed 1 million+ carpools and prevented 3100 tons of carbon emission, since kicking off the service in January 2018 in Pune.  With over 30,000 daily active users, Quick Ride is doing around 7000 carpools daily, thereby preventing around 7000 vehicles from road every day. This initiative alone is preventing around 21 tons of carbon emission every day. Out of the total users in Pune, 57% of Quick Riders are women, thus ensuring convenience and safety while commuting. Additionally, the brand has executed “Go-GREEN “ Carpooling awareness campaign in 50+ companies including WIPRO, Cognizant, Capgemini, Infosys, IBM, Tech Mahindra, Mphasis, HCL,  etc., in the areas like Hinjewadi, Magarpatta City, Talwade, etc.

In a very short span, Pune has become the 3rd largest user-base across all India and in Maharashtra, it is the largest market with 4 times the user-base compared to Mumbai. This achievement underscores Quick Ride’s commitment to reduce transit time, traffic congestion, and carbon footprint. With the growing customer base, Quick Ride is offering a reliable carpooling service which provides an affordable and safe alternative.

Reiterating the company’s desire to lead the way in shared mobility, KNM Rao, Co-founder and CEO of Quick Ride said, “Carpooling aims at maximizing the use of private vehicles already on the roads to reduce carbon footprint and congestion. The foundational idea behind Quick Ride is that no new vehicle is added to the road but there is maximization of available seat space. Users are rewarded by a point system, which they can redeem and efficiently cover their fuel costs. We are therefore extremely elated and encouraged by the fact that Quick Ride has registered 2 million users today and that we have successfully prevented 36000 tons of carbon emission across cities. Our goal is to reduce one million cars from the roads every day, and prevent at least 3000 tons of carbon emission every day by 2020. We will continue to expand across all the developing cities in India to enable a hassle free commute for our travellers.”

Currently, cities are grappling with limited space and private vehicles are adding to the vehicular congestion. Registration of private vehicles touched an all-time high. Quick ride is aiming to build a community of conscientious citizens who are willing to contribute toward decongestion and reducing air pollution.
