Here comes Clacsoon, the carpooling service in an app

Person using a smartphone 
October 1 saw the launch of CLACSOON, the carpooling app allowing offers and requests of shared trips to save money and decrease pollution in urban mobility.

You just need to enter your destination and the app locates in real time on the map potential travelling companions, willing to share even just a part of the trip, suggesting the best meeting point. This real-time service offers a fully automated carpooling experience, faster than that of the main competitors. CLACSOON transfers to the digital world – thanks to the smartphone – the ancient tradition of "thumbing a lift"!

With just a few clicks on your smartphone, CLACSOON allows you to offer or request a lift, access in real time info on possible fellow travellers and communicate with them via an instant messaging service.

This app was conceived by GreenShare, a spinoff of the University of Cagliari, to meet the demand for short-range mobility via carpooling, a money-saving and green choice. This system helps reduce traffic congestion and use of public parking spaces. Fewer cars on the road also means less CO2 and particulate matter emissions from car exhaust and so better air quality in the city.

The app is currently available for Android systems and can be downloaded free of charge from Google Play Store or the dedicated website.
