BlaBlaCar is the world’s leading long-distance carpooling community, connecting people looking to travel long distances with drivers going the same way. They travel together and share the costs of the journey. The platform is engineered to create a secure, trust-based community with declared identities and full member profiles. Members can even specify how chatty they are from “Bla” to “BlaBlaBla”, hence the name BlaBlaCar. BlaBlaCar is creating a global people-powered network with a trusted community of drivers and passengers. Backed by Accel Partners, Insight Ventures, Index Ventures, Lead Edge Capital, Baring Vostok and ISAI, it operates in 22 countries across Europe, Russia, Turkey, Mexico, Brazil and India. The site and free mobile apps provide a range of features to create a secure, trust-based community and easy connections between drivers and passengers. BlaBlaCar is based in Paris with offices across a dozen of countries.
