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.
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.
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.
Toogethr is very scalable and applicable for other cities and even countries. Our service can be replicated in any city with a business area.

Waar je woont en hoe je leeft, heeft invloed op je gezondheid. Hoe kunnen we de leefomgeving inrichten om de gezondheid van bewoners te bevorderen en gezondheidsachterstanden te verminderen? Tijdens deze KL Brouwerij gaan we samen op buurtsafari op het Marineterrein in Amsterdam.
Het Marineterrein is een prachtige leefomgeving, waar veel geëxperimenteerd wordt met creatieve innovaties die de leefomgeving en publieke ruimte van de toekomst voorbereiden. Op 28 september gaan we samen op safari over het terrein. We ervaren zelf hoe een aantal van deze experimenten onze leefomgeving verbeteren. Daarna vertelt Annick Mantoua, directeur van De Gezonde Stad over hoe zij samen met bewoners en de gemeente een initiatief hebben opgestart dat leidt tot aanpassingen in de fysieke leefomgeving en de bevordering van de gezondheid in de buurt.
We laten ons inspireren door de leefomgeving van de toekomst. We zoeken naar inspiratie voor wat er allemaal mogelijk is en zal zijn in de openbare ruimte, en ontwerpen vervolgens onze eigen ideeën. Kom ook!
De KL Brouwerij wordt georganiseerd door Kennisland. Een aantal keer per jaar laten we ons werk even voor wat het is en brouwen we samen nieuwe ideeën voor maatschappelijke uitdagingen. We brengen leven in de brouwerij door te ontdekken, smeden, broeden, fantaseren en borrelen. Dit doen we met partners, experts, ervaringsdeskundigen en betrokkenen bij het vraagstuk dat die middag centraal staat, en waar we meer over willen leren.
Deze KL Brouwerij vindt plaats op <strong>28 september van 16.30-18.30 uur</strong>. Meer informatie en aanmelden kan via onderstaande link. Via e-mail houden we je op de hoogte over het programma. Heb je vragen? Stuur dan een mailtje naar Faduma Mukhtar via email@example.com.
I am a mid-career Architect and, Urban and Regional Planner. I recently graduated with a second master's (MSc.) from IHS, Erasmus University Rotterdam, with a Specialization in "Infrastructure and Smart Cities". My MSc. thesis research topic was based on Circular Economy concepts including the Circular Business Model and High-value reuse of material and components.
I am very passionate about smart cities and sustainability, and I am highly inspired by all the work in the smart city area that is being done in the Netherlands, where I hope to contribute and make a positive impact.
Previously, in addition to planning and project management roles, I have worked in relevant areas of smart mobility, ICT Infrastructure, renewable energy, and waste to energy, among others as part of consulting firms.
I am looking for possible work opportunities in the Smart City area in the Netherlands. I will appreciate any reference, resource, and mentorship that could be offered to me.
At the heart of the GEMINI Project lies a commitment to fostering innovation and to accelerate the transition towards climate neutrality in mobility solutions.
Goal 11 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals advocates for access to safe, affordable, and sustainable transport systems. Nowadays, transport plays a significant role on air pollution and is one of the major sources of greenhouse gas emissions and is the only sector in the EU with increased Green House Gas (GHG) emissions compared to 1990.
The promotion of sustainable and innovative mobility solutions can help towards reducing GHG and carbon footprints, improving air quality, and achieving climate goals.
The GEMINI Project (2023-2026 “Greening European Mobility through cascading innovation Initiatives” is a Horizon Europe funded project with 43 partners led by the Urban Electric Mobility Initiative (UEMI).
To accelerate the transition towards climate neutrality, GEMINI aims to foster widespread adoption of sustainable shared mobility solutions. To achieve this, the project will develop and test innovative business models for New Mobility Services (NMS) such as shared connected automated vehicles and shared mobility public transport through public-private partnerships. The NMS business models will be demonstrated in ten European Cities (Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Munich, Leuven, Ljubljana, Paris-Saclay, Porto and Turin).
Additionally, GEMINI will create digital tools and platforms that accommodate various mobility services, promoting collaboration and integration within the mobility sector. The project will actively engage stakeholders in the co-creation process, introducing Mobility as a Commons (MaaC) and incentivizing behavioural shifts and user acceptance of these new mobility options.
Furthermore, GEMINI will formulate policy recommendations to enable the scaling up and replication of successful mobility solutions. By aligning with Sustainable Urban Mobility Plans (SUMPs) and urban mobility planning frameworks, the project aims to contribute to a comprehensive policy package that guides and incentivizes future mobility innovations. The GEMINI project envisions fostering sustainable, accessible, and affordable shared mobility solutions that contribute to a safer and more environmentally friendly urban mobility landscape.
Cenex NL key contributions
The team plays a vital role in developing policy recommendations and technology roadmaps to accelerate the deployment of innovative mobility services. Through collaboration with local authorities in twinning cities, these roadmaps will align with the fast-track deployment of shared mobility trends in the short and medium term. Additionally, Cenex NL will contribute to the development of the Handbook consolidating the project’s learnings and offering practical guidance to cities and citizens across Europe.
