BlaBlaCar intends to expand mobility service beyond carpooling

First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com

BlaBlaCar is hoping to expand its carpooling service by making an offer to acquire Ouibus, a subsidiary of SNCF and French bus operator.

BlaBlaCar believes adding buses to its current offering will help optimise vehicle occupancy rates for buses and cars and offer a convenient door-to-door solution for travellers.

Nicolas Brusson, co-founder and CEO of BlaBlaCar, says the project supports the company’s ambition to grow a broad mobility offering across Europe which combines cars and buses.

Frédéric Mazzella, president and founder of BlaBlaCar, says: “Our mission has always been to fill up empty vehicles, and a full bus produces ten times less CO2 per person than someone alone in their car.”

Additionally, BlaBlaCar has announced a €101 million investment from SNCF and its own investors to build an intermodal travel solution in France which consists of carpooling, buses and trains.
