GreenRide is a start-up selected by Exeter City Futures in collaboration with Exeter City Council to help reduce congestion in the city.

Their service is a mobile app, that allows drivers to share empty car seats in real time. The drivers recover the costs of their journey whilst giving passengers an affordable door-to-door transport option.

How GreenRide Works

At the start of the journey, drivers enter their destination, available seats and acceptable detour time on to the GreenRide mobile app, which includes satellite navigation. Passengers request a ride when they need and the app checks to see if a driver is on a similar route. The driver receives a pickup request and the app directs them to the passenger.

No fees are charged to BID member businesses.
