Kangaride Ridesharing - Revolutionary Inter-city Transportation Service Now Available In Canada

TORONTO, April 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - After seven successful years in Eastern Canada, the Kangaride ridesharing service is now being launched across Canada, with more than 21,000 seats, or the equivalent of 500 buses, available every week to inter-city travellers, from Halifax to Vancouver.

This exceptional service, which represents a revolution in inter-city transportation, is made possible thanks to Kangaride's 25 employees, its reliable online and telephone booking service, and a customer service centre that is open seven days a week. With great emphasis on security, Kangaride validates its drivers' licences with the proper authorities in Ontario, British Columbia and Quebec.

"By allowing members to rate each other, verifying the validity of our members' driver's licences, offering professional support and dedicated customer service 365 days a year, Kangaride is an option that is equally as logical as a bus service, for a significant segment of the population," explains Kangaride President Marc-Olivier Vachon.

Kangaride specializes in inter-city ridesharing for passengers and drivers who travel occasionally between cities everywhere in Canada. Be it from Toronto to Ottawa or Calgary to Edmonton, for example, you can share the fuel costs by offering seats in your vehicle to passengers who have booked in advance, and your passengers can benefit by saving money on their travel costs. In addition, this collective transportation service delivers positive, eco-friendly benefits for the planet, with individual fuel efficiency up-to less than two liters per 100 kilometres.

"The system has been designed so that passengers and drivers can book with confidence and with the assurance that the service will be offered at the quoted price, without need for negotiation, at a set departure time and pick-up location," adds Mr. Vachon.
