Special Promotion between Scoop and the city of Foster City

In October 2016, Foster City partnered with Scoop Technologies to bring a first-of-its-kind program aimed to decrease the amount of cars on the road and lessen the traffic burdens of commuters going to and from Foster City. Since launching in October, over 2000 people have signed up to use Scoop for their commute in and out of Foster City saving over 225,000 pounds of CO2 and reducing almost 10,000 vehicle trips.

What Exactly is Scoop and What it means for the City and the Surrounding Area

Scoop is a mobile application that allows commuters to save time, money and the environment through shared carpooling. Foster City has partnered with Scoop in a joint initiative that is designed to decrease the amount of cars on the road and lessen the morning and evening traffic burdens of commuters to and from Foster City and surrounding peninsula neighborhoods.

How to take advantage and make your commute easier

Commuters can schedule carpools using Scoop and save between 33% and 50%. Participation in the program is easy once a commuter downloads the app at takescoop.com or from the iOS or Android app stores.

What riders and drivers are saying about Scoop....

"No stranger danger here! Unlike other carpool/rideshare programs, Scoop has allowed me the flexibility to schedule my commute, with convenience and ease. The experience thus far has been a great opportunity to meet & chat with other working professionals in the area; all the while reducing my commute by up to 30 minutes a ride!" – Jenn, Scoop User
"Scoop was really easy and convenient." – Edmund, Scoop user
"Scoop is life changing!!I plan to drive one or two times a week and be a rider the other days. I have met 2 new colleagues @ work and a fellow electric vehicle driver to compare notes with. On a few rides, I was able to actually get some work done and call my dad more than I would have! So it's already made an immediate impact on my work and family life. All this in ONE week that Scoop came to my route!! I can't wait to see what I will be able to accomplish in the coming weeks and months of riding with Scoop. Thank you Scoop for coming to my life." – Srini, Scoop User
