Online PR News – 10-April-2015 – Goregaon, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India – Mumbai, Maharashtra, April 6, 2015; RideFine.com, a company that is committed to providing Indian commuters a convenient and safe carpooling solution, announced the launch of its mobile application, RideFine. The mobile app is available for the Android OS and Apple's iOS.

The app, which can be downloaded free of cost from Google Play or the App Store, enables a person to offer as well as accept car rides. The aim is to simplify the process of organising carpools, so that commuters can be saved from the hassles of travelling in crowded public transportation, like local trains, or expensive alternatives like auto-rickshaws and cabs.

According to the website, some of the other driving factors for people using the Ride-Fine mobile app would be to make travel expenses a monthly payment, rather than a daily expense. Moreover, this solution is expected to reduce traffic and be an eco-friendly option for commuting, easing the problem of global warming.

The application is user friendly. It enables the user to easily send requests and accept or reject them. It displays all the requests received, so that the user can exercise choice. The mobile application helps save money and allows multiuser bookings. Once the app is downloaded, a user is immediately credited with 50 points or Rs.50. Subsequently, every minimum recharge is 100 points or Rs.100.

The 'points' structure has been kept simple, with 1 km being equivalent to 10 points or Rs.10 for taking a ride. When a user offers a ride, his account is credited with Rs.8 per km. The payment system is made convenient with users being able to pay for rides with Ride-Fine credits, or points. In case a passenger who is taking the ride cancels it less than 30 minutes prior to commencement of the journey, there is a cancellation penalty of 10 points, which is deducted from the user's account. There are similar penalty systems for users offering rides. The cancelation fees have been structured to ensure maximum convenience to all users.

Safety has been built into the approval process for people offering rides as well as commuters. After downloading the app, as person would need to register by submitting certain documents that verify the identity of the user. This is maintained in RideFine.com's database and can be retrieved quickly if the need arises.
