Tickengo Unveils Corporate Rideshare Network for Employees to Share Commute & Earn Rewards

180 Bay Area Companies Enjoy the Social Rideshare Program

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 13, 2011) - Tickengo, a social rideshare network that connects drivers with empty seats in their cars with passengers going to the same destination, today announced the availability of an innovative new corporate product that will enable employees to seamlessly organize a carpool system within their own company.

"We wanted to make it easy for companies to develop a rideshare program, without developing any software or website," explained Tickengo CEO Jeremie Romand. "Our goal is to use the power of social web and cloud computing to reduce CO2 emissions and traffic, and to improve the way employees interact when they are commuting."

Tickengo has thus far added 180 companies to the program, each of which has their own Tickengo corporate network on the dedicated page sfbay.tickengo.com. Employees of these companies can sign up on their corporate network, enjoy the benefits of social mobility and earn rewards. Others can easily create their own Tickengo network at no cost, in the Bay Area and beyond.

A sampling of companies currently using the Tickengo corporate rideshare program includes: Conceptus, Microsemi, Glam Media, Criteo, eMeter, New Relic, SpringAhead, and Sideman & Bancroft.

"Tickengo is a great way to go if you are looking to contribute to our environment, make your everyday commute a pleasant time, and save money on gas," said Michael Canon, sales manager at New Relic in San Francisco.

Companies can connect their network with others in their geographic area in order to grow their critical mass of commuters, and also add locations, features and get promotional assistance from Tickengo.
