PickMe Hitch is Sri Lanka’s first carpooling service set to launch on the platform to give a new meaning to Ride Sharing in Sri Lanka. It’s a simple idea that offers several benefits. The way PickMe Hitch works is pretty straightforward.
Firstly, a driver sets their starting point and final destination. Anyone else who needs a ride to a location between these two points can use the app to request the driver for a ride. So if you’re traveling from home to the office, then along the way you can help a student sitting for their O/Ls or another professional struggling to get to the office on time.
With yet another fuel price hike, it’s increasingly challenging for us to travel anywhere. Heeding the request of fellow Sri Lankans, PickMe has adapted by introducing a socio-economic feature that will enable users to share rides and travel cost-effectively. Moreover, the company has pledged that no management fee will be charged for the use of the service; meaning PickMe’s driver-partners also gain from the service by receiving the full amount for the hire.
The benefits of ridesharing are plenty, and it is no longer an option, but a necessity in Sri Lanka’s present economy. While saving tremendous amounts of fuel, the use of PickMe Hitch aims to also decongest the roads by reducing the number of vehicles on the move. The platform also foresees help to the environment by reducing carbon emissions and improving the efficiency of use of non-renewable fuel resources. With this, rider safety is one of the company’s top priorities; and using a verified platform like PickMe will ensure the safety of carpooling in today’s society.
Stay tuned for more updates on the launch of PickMe Hitch and how the app is fostering the social and economic growth of Sri Lanka through such innovative initiatives.
