The greatest transportation woes are experienced when commuting between the home and the workplace. Long distances between work and home, coupled with quickly developing urban areas has made bumper-to-bumper traffic an expected and frustrating part of each morning and evening commute.
The issue of traffic congestion is severe for commuters in any city. Most urban communities experience medium to high levels of traffic congestion but in Chicago the growth of private vehicle use has increased this congestion at an even quicker rate. Even with the innovation of Uber and a growing “share economy,” little has been done to stymie the growing concern amongst both those who commute inside the city limits and those who commute from the suburbs. While public transportation is certainly a viable option, many commuters are put off by the less than sanitary surroundings and find it difficult to find trains that align with their busy schedule. So we thought…what about carpooling?
As we all know, carpooling is the utilization of an individual’s private or company vehicle to transport one or more fellow passengers from place to place. zooKKs model of carpooling is simple because it is based off one many of us have already used: either one individual does all the driving and is repaid for mileage by his or her riders or the driver rotates from person to person. The carpool driver may pick up passengers from their homes or the passengers, if possible, may meet the driver either at his or her home. With the zooKKs app, we take care of all that bothersome coordination so you don’t have to. Finally, with zooKKs, you can have a less stressful alternative to your hectic morning commute.

What are the advantages of carpooling?
Diminish Parking Demand: Parking demand will be decreased via carpooling as less parking spaces are used by commuters.
Lessen Travel Demand: The thought behind diminishing travel demand is that by decreasing the quantity of vehicle outings on the existing road system, rather than exhausting the road system, we can effectively reduce overcrowding on public transportation as well. As one is altered, so will the other be affected. Lessing this demand concentrates on augmenting the movement of individuals, not vehicles, within the transportation system by increasing the quantity of persons in a vehicle, or by influencing the time of travel.
Save Money: For the government, decreasing the number of vehicles used for commuting is far more fiscally responsible than building new transportation facilities or roadways. For commuters, carpooling is an effective way to save money on gas and vehicle repairs from everyday wear and tear.
Decrease Pollution: By reducing the number of vehicles on the road, we can effectively lower our carbon footprint. As concern for the environment and awareness of global warming grows, vehicle reduction becomes a clear and easy alternative to commuting alone. Carpooling with zooKKs will lessen vehicle-generated air pollution like never before.
