Community platform for sharing rides by carpooling and bus, BlaBlaCar announced this week that it has crossed the 100 million members worldwide with a presence in 22 country.
In France which is its country of origin, BlaBlacar claims 20 millions of users and a registration of 60% of the aged population between 18 and 35 years. Note that there is no specific reference to the number of active users.
BlaBlacar has logically suffered from the health crisis, but is now observing a strong recovery in its activities. This recovery is all the more supported with the increase in fuel prices at the pump.
“ The stage of 100 million members shows that carpooling is now a widespread phenomenon “, comments Nicolas Brusson, co-founder and CEO of BlaBlaCar. He underlines that 90% of new registrants are outside France.
In France, BlaBlaCar indicates that the average distance for a trip is of 280 km, and more than 250 000 meeting points are serviced monthly.
