One of Oscars primary focuses and new product ‘Ride’, aims to revolutionize the way we commute: A company signs up to be part of Ride and advertises the service to its employees. Each participant declares where they live, what type of car they drive and whether they prefer to be a driver or passenger, or either. Ride uses algorithms to group workers together based on where they live and when they commute to and from work. In each group, the person farthest from the office geographically is designated as the driver and picks up colleagues along the route, using directions from the app. Ride believes it will help companies reach their sustainability goals and improve carbon footprints. Commuting together means fewer cars on the road.
