Tripda is a car pooling service platform that connects passengers and drivers in a simple and cool environmentally-friendly way. The founders of Tripda are; Eduardo Prota, Pedro Meduna, Joe Mcfarlane, and Adi Vaxman. Tripda falls under the travel and transportation category.
Tripda operates in America, Uruguay, Colombia, India, Mexico, Pakistan, Singapore, Philippines, Brazil, Argentina, Taiwan, and Malaysia. Tripda offers a car pooling service for users who are looking for a ride to the same place where the Tripda drivers are going. Note, there are two sides of Tripda; one is to offer a ride and the other is to search for a ride, hence becoming a passenger. For today, we’ll be focusing on searching a ride.
When a user enters the Tripda app, they will find two buttons; one is to ‘Search’ and the other is to ‘Offer’. When a user wants to search for a ride, just click on the ‘Search’ button and they will see three keywords-like fill in the blanks; ‘From’, ‘To’, and ‘Date (optional)’. Once the user keys in their whereabouts (From) and their destination (To), they need to key in the ‘Date’ and press ‘Find a Ride’ at the bottom of the screen.
Okay, here is the most important part. When users are searching a ride on the Tripda app, they have a ‘green’ and ‘pink’ ride offers. The ‘pink’ ride offers are called ‘Ladies Only’ and this option is only for women drivers and women passengers. This option allows women to travel with other women, and this way, it is to develop a sense of trust among women who travel alone or with a company. However, the normal ‘green’ ride offers are for any general passengers.
I have used the Tripda and I find it very useful, especially searching for a short distance ride. However, the app has some minor flaw. Whenever I enter the app, it kicks me out (this happens rarely but the first time I tried it, the app kicks me out). Another flaw that I’ve found is that the app lags big time. Tripda’s UI is very simple and elegant which makes any Tripda users to access it easier.
Everything about this app have been explained in Part 1. Part 2 is for users who wants to search for a ride. Tripda can be downloaded in Google Play Store. Have you tried Tripda? Let us know what do you think about this app.
