Widely used with a rating system plus secure payment for both passengers and the driver, Blablacar.fr is the main Car Pooling resource in Brittany and across France.
Formed in 2003, When Frédéric Mazzella was trying to get home to his family in the French countryside for Christmas 2003, he struggled as he had no car and all the trains were full. After begging his sister to pick him up, it was on the road when Fred noticed the sheer number of people driving alone. He realised that all those empty seats in existing cars could be the beginning of a new travel network.
With over 80 million members over 22 Countries, it is estimated that 1.6 million tonnes of CO2 were saved by BlaBlaCar car-poolers in 2018.
