OverviewSuggest Edit

Scoop is a mobile carpooling application for commuters. Its mission is to end traffic congestion nationwide by turning single-occupant vehicles into efficient carpools. Scoop’s automated carpool solution enables commuters to schedule and share their commutes, saving time, money, and the environment. The Scoop iOS and Android apps enable commuters to request a carpool for each commute trip, one way at a time and without any long-term commitment. Its matching algorithm places commuters into carpools with neighbors and co-workers based on a wide variety of factors, including home and work locations, employer, traffic conditions, pick-up time, and more. The entire process takes seconds to complete and Scoop handles logistics, driver safety checks, sharing of expenses, and trip coordination. Scoop users split the cost of the commute and riders reimburse the driver for gas and the cost of wear and tear to the car.
