Corporate Carpooling is this month's featured 50% Solution. Nationally, more than three-quarters (76.4%) of commuters drive to work alone, but in the Cincinnati metro area, this figure is 80-90%. Corporate carpooling networks allow companies and organizations to limit vehicle congestion, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and avoid costly investments in surface lots and parking garages.
Carpooling programs can improve employee wellness and retain workforce talent; 55% of employees say their commute has led to higher levels of stress and almost 1 in 4 employees have left a job because of the commute.
Scoop Technologies, a Professional Partner of the Cincinnati 2030 District, is a corporate carpooling service based in San Francisco, CA. Scoop, whose current clients include LinkedIn, Workday, Expedia, T-Mobile, and Bedrock, works to match local commuters with drivers willing to carpool in an effort to provide inexpensive and reliable transportation to and from work.
Trips are prescheduled using a mobile app; the Scoop app then automatically pairs carpoolers based on routes and detours. In the event a carpool is not located for a user, the app will schedule a ride from its taxi partner Lyft.
