Q: How does it work?

A: When a user registers with their home and office addresses along with respective morning and evening commute times, our platform will show how many other people are commuting along similar routes at similar times. Rather than assigning carpooling partners to each user, the zooKKs app allows each commuter to choose whom to ride or drive with. Not only does this keep user in control, but also it provides a certain standard of safety by keeping carpooling between working professionals who may even be neighbors or coworkers.

Q: What is ridesharing?

A: Ridesharing is the most intuitive alternative to driving to work alone or taking public transportation. The benefits to consolidating multiple commuters into one vehicle are many and hard to ignore. By carpooling to work, the everyday working person has the ability to not only save money on travel expenses and reduce traffic congestion, but to do a little bit extra for the environment as well. Less vehicles on the road every morning and evening means less traffic and less transportation related greenhouse gas emissions. To rideshare means to make the smartest decision financially and environmentally.

Q: What’s in it for me?

A: Not only is ridesharing with zooKKs is an affordable and convenient way for commuters travel between the home and office, but we give users an opportunity to feel better about their carbon footprints. Using our app costs less than driving alone or taking public transportation so it makes it a no-brainer for anyone looking for a simple and viable way to help the environment. We also provide incentive for users who refer their friends and family by giving them credit towards their account for future rides. And for commuters who already carpool, zooKKs simply streamlines and simplifies that process.

Q: Why is it just for commuters?

A: Commuters create most traffic congestion during rush hour. Since most commuters drive alone, zooKKs wanted to know what would happen if we consolidated multiple commuters into one vehicle. There are no solutions currently available for commuters who experience stress and frustration from their commutes, but we hope that as more people begin to carpool with zooKKs, we will be able to minimize traffic during rush hour, save working professionals time and money, and leave the environment a little better than we found it. zooKKs wants take the stress out of the most stressful time of day.

Q: Can I use zooKKs abroad?

A: Yes, you can access our zooKKs app anywhere, anytime. You can create or request a carpool wherever you migrate. However, if you experience an address change in fewer than three months, you must contact us with your updated information in order to change your address. Right now, we are focusing on launching the app in our hometown of Chicago, but we certainly do not discourage use in other cities.

Q: Is zooKKs free to use?

A: Membership on zooKKs is free. zooKKs does not charge any fee to download or browse the app. However, should you choose to use our services and carpool with zooKKs, much like PayPal, zooKKs will take a small percentage of the payment that passengers make to their drivers.

Q: Is zooKKs for only for a limited destinations and cities?

A: zooKKs works wherever there are commuters. However, we find that most commuters typically travel less than 100 miles to their destinations. To deter use of the app by non-commuters, we have limited the allowable distance between home and work to 100 miles.

Q: How does zooKKs maintain my privacy data?

A: We have the utmost concern for your privacy and safety. In the zooKKs list view, you will only visible by your name, the street name of your home and office addresses (not the specific house or building number), and the time that you commute. No private data is shared until you feel comfortable with a Ko-zooKKie and are ready to share a commute.

Q: How is zooKKs better than other rideshare services/apps?

A: Unlike other rideshare apps, zooKKs doesn’t operate with contracted drivers. We merely set up connections between people who commute along similar routes. That way, drivers and passengers can choose their commuting companions and have stress free rides.

Q: Does zooKKs share my personal information?

A: We maintain the highest safety and security standards by keeping your information private. zooKKs works by matching people up with similar routes based on the information shared with us in their profiles, but we do not disclose your specific address, phone number, or email. It is up to you to choose whom to share your information with, which keeps you in control and stress free.

Q: Why should I use zooKKs instead of carpooling on my own with friends and neighbors?

A: Of course you could certainly make carpooling connections on your own, but with zooKKs you can cut out all of the messy coordination and anxiety that goes with it. We make it possible to make carpooling arrangements with commuters in your area, without having to spend precious extra time and energy. If you already have a carpooling arrangement, using zooKKs makes juggling times and places a breeze, while giving you the opportunity to earn money and rewards.

Q: Why should I use zooKKs instead of driving on my own?

A: Recent years has seen an increase in private vehicle use in the USA — this means more traffic congestion and more vehicle based air pollution. By using zooKKs, we can reduce traffic congestion by decreasing the number of vehicles on the road–which means a faster commute for you and a better environment for all of us!

Q: Why should I use zooKKs instead of public transportation?

A: While using public transportation is more environmentally friendly than everyone using their own car, it’s not necessarily schedule friendly OR stress free. Finding public transportation that matches your schedule, dealing with overcrowding and all the unpleasant things that come with it, and not to mention the sometimes less than sanitary conditions don’t exactly make for an enjoyable commute. zooKKs is the perfect way to start and end your day in comfort and style.

Q: What if the driver gets into a car accident?

A: While zooKKs would be very upset to be informed of an accident, we would not be held liable. Since we do not contract drivers, carpooling is done at each commuter’s own risk. Operating much like Airbnb or Craigslist, we merely connect people with one another so that they may have access to an alternative commuting opportunity.

Q: Does zooKKs perform background checks on its users??

A: zooKKs does not perform background checks at this time. It is up to each user’s discretion whom to carpool with and what information to share. However, we do have certain security measures in place to deter misuse of the app and to encourage good behavior. If you should encounter any suspicious behavior, please notify our team and we will look into the issue.
