Creating Social Travel
BlaBlaCar, founded in 2006, is the leading marketplace that connects any driver who has empty seats with paying passengers.
BlaBlaCar has a European foot print with Covoiturage.fr in France, BlaBlaCar.com in the UK,BlaBlaCar.es in Spain and soon BlaBlaCar.it in Italy.
With 2m users, BlaBlaCar is Europe’s most active online collaborative consumption community. The rise of collaborative consumption - sharing unused assets and resources such as a guest room in your flat or a seat in your car - is creating a fundamental shift in the way people consume goods and services.
In an age where the average car carries just 1.4 people, BlaBlaCar’s ambition is to reduce the environmental impact of vehicles by rationalising people’s use of cars. In the past few years, BlaBlaCar’s service has experienced an explosive growth, reaching:
- 2m members including 400,000 drivers offering their empty seats and sharing their motoring cost with passengers going the same way, ranging from long distance trips across Europe to simple daily commute
- One billion miles collectively shared by the community and more than 8 million passengers transported
- 40m page views per month
