Envoiture.fr - First Facebook Application Dedicated to Carpooling In France!

With the application Envoiture.fr, a new era is starting in France for carpooling

PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The new Facebook application “Envoiture.fr” (or Rideshare.co.uk in English) enables Facebook users to easily share lifts and travel cheaply through Facebook. Users can see their friends´ lifts and can instantly decide to join them and agree on a meeting point and costs. Normal search results in the application include all rides available on the site Envoiture.fr, with the additional feature of being able to view the Facebook profile of drivers and passengers whose account is connected to Facebook. Users can see if they are friends of friends, neighbors, regular travelers or new acquaintances.

“Facebook is free and enables people to connect and share. These are the exact values of our carpooling service.”

The application is completely free and can be accessed from the Facebook page of Carpooling Envoiture.fr or at the address http://apps.facebook.com/envoiture_fr or within the Facebook Application directory under the name “Envoiture.fr”. On the welcome page of the application, users are invited to follow their friends’ rides or to search for a ride from the Envoiture.fr database. Publishing offers and requests requires a free registration, if you don’t have an account already.

The carpooling application is being launched simultaneously in 8 European countries and gives Facebook users access to Europe’s largest carpooling database with more than 350,000 trips. “Facebook is free and enables people to connect and share. These are the exact values of our carpooling service.” says Odile Beniflah, manager of Envoiture.fr. “ It is natural for us to help Facebook users connect and share a ride without changing their communication habits.“

Thanks to this application, Envoiture.fr goes beyond the traditional carpooling website and opens the doors to more social carpooling on Facebook. Envoiture.fr looks forward to user feedback to help develop its application even further; a significant step for carpooling in France.
