Share a ride, Toogethr.
Share a ride, Toogethr.
Toogethr is a ridesharing platform developed within the Zuidas that removes all barriers associated with traditional carpooling. In association with Accenture, ABN AMRO, ENGIE and PwC we joined forces to develop a state of the art service that makes commuting work better by traveling together. Toogethr makes sharing rides with colleagues easy and fun by automatically providing the best matches and rewarding users by means of earning points. This project has recently won the The Hague Innovators 2017 public prize.
Toogethr is a Dutch start-up. We believe that commuting works better when we travel together. By driving together, we can beat traffic jams, solve parking problems reduce emission and create new networking opportunities at the same time! The Toogethr app connects colleagues in communities. You don’t have to search for colleagues to share a ride with yourself, the Toogethr app automatically matches colleagues on the basis of location, working schedule and car ownership.
With Toogethr, organizations can transform their corporate mobility plan in an innovative and environmentally responsible way, whilst saving costs on traveling expenses. In turn, Toogethr also benefits employees, namely by expanding their networks and rewarding them for shared rides with colleagues.
We all know that sharing rides is better. It results in more parking spaces, and a reduction of traffic jams, CO2 emissions and traveling expenses. Our ambition is quite simple: The Netherlands is better off having 25.000 less cars on the road. If we can realize that together, this leads to...
*50.000 users expanding their network every day
*2000 rush hour avoidances at Zuidas Amsterdam in 2017
*>€ 30 000 000, annual savings in travel expenses
*> 17 000 tonne, reduction on our combined annual CO2 emissions
In the three months since we launched our service the number of organizations and users that use Toogethr, has grown fast. This month we are implementing Toogethr in four organizations. At the moment we are discussing the implementation of Toogethr with 43 more organizations. Besides that we have established a partnership with the City of Amsterdam in our first months.

Planned developments include expanding the scope to communities sharing rides to festivals and other events. We also constantly develop new app features, which are the result of listening to our users. Furthermore, Toogethr has just gone international, with our service now available in Belgium, Luxemburg and a large part of Germany. Since Toogethr is very scalable and applicable the next step will be enrolling our service to even more companies, regions and countries.
Strong and committed partners are essential to make projects a success.
