Charlotte’s newest carpooling app has just officially launched across our region.
Soon after we learned that we won’t be seeing any significant changes to the I-77 toll lanes, Zome started offering its services city-wide, bringing an affordable and community-focused solution to both riders and drivers.
Using the Zome APP, available on iOS and Android, riders and drivers can now be matched 24 hours a day.
“As one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, Charlotte is seeing more and more commuters on the road,” said Steven Zhu, CEO of Zome. “Zome’s vision is to provide a cost-effective and meaningful option for area commuters who travel the Charlotte highways on a weekly basis. Carpooling with neighbors and coworkers provides a sense of community; in addition, has been shown to reduce a commuter’s stress and lower a company’s carbon footprint. Our focus is now on corporate partnerships and community education as Zome continues to grow.”
How Zome Works:
1. SCHEDULE YOUR RIDE – You can simply schedule a ride by selecting your pick-up location, departure time, and return time.
2. GET MATCHED – Zome will send a message to tell you the match result. Once matched, confirm the trip. We will send both the driver and the rider the time and location for the pick-up. We match users every hour!
3. SHOW UP ON TIME – Meet at the prescribed location for pick-up. Then enjoy your ride!
