234car is a car sharing system that allows people to find others to share their journey. It uses route matching technology to help users find accurate journey and car share matches.
234car provides organisations with web browser based car sharing system that allows members to connect with other users to share car journeys. It uses software that improves the effectiveness of route matching by comparing entire routes rather than point to point data.
It also allows users to match journeys combined with other options such as working hours and sharing preferences such as non-smoking and women-only.
234car was formally known as e-carshare.
It has shown success with a number of organisations including Bristol University where it reduced the number of staff usually driving to work by 12% and in Oxford where over 15 organisations of the Oxford NHS and universities make use of a shared system.
