Introducing Passenger: the World’s First Dynamic Real-time Shared Mobility Service

November 28, 2018

Passenger is redefining mainstream mass transportation by making ridesharing an easy and accessible alternative, beneficial for yourself and the environment.

Studies show that the cost of traffic congestion is $160 billion annually, with an extra 3 billion gallons of fuel burned.

A call for action 

As urban environments develop, so do the need for transportation to and within the city. However, cites are faced with the increasingly pressing problem of traffic congestions and crowded roads. Studies show that the cost of traffic congestion is $160 billion annually, with an extra 3 billion gallons of fuel burned¹. 

As this is unsustainable in the long run, both economically and environmentally, new transportation methods are being explored. 

What is Passenger? 

Passenger One AB was founded in 2016 by Muhammed Al-Bagdadi, after realizing that there’s a straightforward and easy solution to limit the excessive number of cars in the cities using inner city ridesharing. Maximizing the number of people in a vehicle is cost- and time effective for both passengers and drivers. Furthermore, as the demand for cars decrease, traffic will be lighter, and cities won’t be jammed at rush hour.

We created Passenger because we want to change the way people transport themselves by making ridesharing an easy and accessible alternative. With one tap on your phone, Passenger will in real-time match you with a driver or passenger heading your way. This is favorable for both the driver and the passenger: the driver benefits by earning money, while the passenger is saving time on a hassle-free ride, being picked up and dropped off door to door. Furthermore, every time Passenger is used, both the driver and passenger earn Leaf points which can be redeemed for free services such as parking, car wash and fuel, to name a few.

Our planet will thank you

Not only are you helping yourself, you are helping the environment. By limiting the number of cars used, you are limiting the amount of fuel burned. Studies show that 7.54 to 7.74 billion gallons of fuel is saved if one extra passenger is added to every 10 vehicles².

In fact, a different study showed that 3,000 4-passenger ridesharing vehicles could serve 98% of the taxi demand in NYC³, which clearly speaks to the benefits of ridesharing and urban mobility services.

The future with Passenger 

Our goal is to reduce single occupancy vehicles and instead make use of the resources at hand in the best way possible to maximize combined mobility for a more sustainable future. Real-time ridesharing with Passenger is the answer.
