BlaBlaCar

If you don’t live in a town with an efficient public transportation you may find BlaBlaCar interesting.
In particular if you plan to do a long distance car journey you can insert your ride online, specifying itinerary and price. Then other travellers can contact you with the application or by telephone in order to share the journey saving money. There is also the possibility for women, who don’t feel comfortable sharing a ride with a man they don’t know, to allow members to plan a ride where the driver and all passengers are only women. Furthermore, you are allowed to rate travellers describing how it was your experience and writing comments in order to help other users to choose the best traveller.
In conclusion it is a successful application because it allows people to save money in security.
