For motorists and passengers, the app helps to find someone suitable to carpool with, thereby reducing motoring or traveling costs by up to 75%. It provides access to the 650,000 carpools available in the network. The app includes a new booking and online payment system, with Paypal now also a choice for making payment.

The booking system allows users to see how many seats are still available. With just a few clicks, a seat in the chosen vehicle can be reserved. The app also provides users with additional information such as user ratings and profile pictures.
