6 Prime Features of Carpooling Clone Script
Carpooling which is also known as car-sharing, ride-sharing and lift-sharing is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car, and prevents the need for others to have to drive to the same location or in the direction of the common location. By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person's travel expense such as fuel costs, tolls, and the stress of driving. Carpooling is also a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing journeys reduces air pollution, carbon emissions, traffic jams on the roads, and the need for parking areas. Now let us see where it all started from. To know much more about the Overview of Carpooling PHP Script have look on my previous blog on Car Pooling.
History of Car Pooling
Carpooling first became prominent in the United States as a rationing tactic during World War II. It returned in the mid-1970s due to the 1973 oil crisis and the 1979 energy crisis.
Carpooling declined precipitously between the 1970s and the 2000s. In large part, this has been attributed to the dramatic fall in gas prices (45%) during the 1980s. In the 1990s it was popular among college students, where campuses have limited parking space.
In 2007 with the advent of smartphones and GPS, which became commercially available. The popularity of the Internet and smartphones has greatly helped carpooling to expand, enabling people to offer and find rides thanks to easy-to-use and reliable online transport marketplaces. In early 2015 the online platform of Blalacar of France and Mitfahrgelegenheit of Germany has counted more than 6 million and 10 million users respectively, across Europe and beyond.
