Blancride is a Toronto-based carpooling service that makes it easy for people to catch a ride on the go. Taking inspiration from the many matchmaking apps out there, Blancride pairs up someone looking for a ride with a driver who's offering a rideshare.
The app does all the heavy lifting you, such as tallying the cost of the ride that should be paid to the driver. As well as being a great way to get from point A to point B, the carpooling app also helps to build community and connect local people. The app also includes a rating system so that passengers are aware of how others perceived experiences with a driver. For people commuting downtown, Blancride is the perfect happy medium between unreliable public transportation and expensive taxi services.
