    Avego is another company in this fast growing market. Our app enables people to share the empty seats with other people going the same way - in real time.
    Like so many others, we are using smart phones and GPS technology to try and consolidate more people into fewer vehicles and we couldn't agree more, that an an empty car seat is a wasted resource.

    What will get people to share? Convenience and ease, for sure.
    But how about time saving - if you could knock an hour off your commute that would be a pretty cool saving!
    One of Avego's users in Washington was thrilled to "get an hour of my life back" when she recently started to use our app on her commute.
    Using Avego to drive to work, meant that the users could access the HOV lane on I95 and whizz past all the lone drivers sat in the regular lane.
    Not only that, the cost of the journey to the rider was more than reasonable - and from the drivers perspective, by sharing her empties with 2 people, twice per day was adding a nice little bit of money to her Avego wallet. Everybody happy!

    As a consumer, I very rarely buy things without reading reviews, whether that is on eBaby or Amazon for example. And I certainly would never book accommodation without checking out what TripAdvisor has to say. So why would I get in a car with somebody without knowing what others have to say about them? With our app, you can now rate and review people.

    Avego has been operating in this space for a few years now. We have been listening to what our users have been saying. With that in mind we will be releasing some cool new features to our app over the next few months - which should help to bring the ease and convenience to ridesharing that people crave.
