 How is it different from other carpooling services like Quickride?

We have seen many carpool apps being in the shade and limelight. rPool is unique because it is engineered according to the definition of what a carpool is. In rPool you can either be a ‘Ride Seeker’ or ‘Ride Giver.’ Once you have successfully registered and verified yourself on the app, it is hardly takes a minute to find the ride. Since this app is dedicated to professionals, you can find people in and around your workplace. Once you have posted an invitation as ‘Ride Giver’ people will accept and you can connect with them to confirm the ride.

If you are the ‘Ride Seeker’ then rPool gives you the liberty to set the rate for every kilometre. Since it is a point based system, one can set points per Kilometre for their vehicle. It can range from 3 to 7. Since the app is in its blooming stage, there are a lot of offers to avail if you register soon.
