News | Spotlight on November's Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Programme winner, Sylvia Sun, co-founder of GreenRide Sharing
19 January 2017
Sylvia Sun won a Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award in November 2016 for her business, GreenRide Sharing.
The GreenRide app is a platform which facilitates on-demand non-commercial ride sharing for commuters and ad hoc travellers on intra-city London journeys. GreenRide utilises existing capacity on London’s roads where there is an average of only 1.6 people per car journey. Through the use of complex algorithms and satellite navigation the GreenRide app is able to match users for instant ride sharing on-the-go in a few clicks. Congestion is a major issue in London’s transport ecosystem and roughly 50% of the NO2 produced in London is caused by traffic. By helping reduce the numbers of cars on the road, GreenRide is seeking to address this issue.
