Poparide experiences record growth as people return to travelling after two years of pandemic.
People turned to carpooling app Poparide to travel between Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa and Montreal amid the train cancellations which started on February 7, 2020.
In the last couple of years, Poparide has grown from 50,000 to over 250,000 members in Canada. We thought this would be a good opportunity to share some of our learnings in growing this business, to help fellow entrepreneurs and innovators with their own journey of building their businesses.
With ride-hailing imminently entering our home province of BC, we are frequently asked the question, “What will be the impact on Poparide?”. The quick answer is that Uber and Lyft are inherently different from Poparide and therefore we don’t think they will have a big impact on our business.
