About Us

We imagine a fairer, more open world of travel.
Where people are better connected and independent.
- BlaBlaCar mission statement

HOW IT ALL STARTED
When Fred was trying to get home to his family in the French countryside for Christmas 2003, he struggled as he had no car and all the trains were full. After begging his sister to pick him up, it was on the road when Fred noticed the sheer number of people driving alone. It hit him that all those empty seats in existing cars could be the beginning of a new travel network. Over the next decade, together with co-founders Francis and Nicolas, the trio took this simple idea and built it into the world’s leading carpooling platform, connecting millions of people going the same way.

BLABLACAR TODAY
BlaBlaCar is the world leading long-distance carpooling platform. It’s a trusted community marketplace that connects car drivers with empty seats to passengers looking for a ride, over average distances of 300km. With 60 million members in 22 countries and over 18 million travellers every quarter, BlaBlaCar is creating an entirely new, people powered, travel network. With a dedicated member relations service, a state of the art web and mobile platform, and a fast-growing trusted community, BlaBlaCar is making travel social, money-saving and more efficient for millions of members.

CURIOUS ABOUT OUR SOCIAL IMPACTS?
Carpooling creates a unique space, enabling exchanges between people who might have never met otherwise but who come together to share a ride.
Bringing People Closer is the largest study conducted on the social impacts of carpooling and reveals the social ties created by carpooling.
– In Entering the Trust Age, a study conducted jointly with NYU Stern, you can also learn about the digital trust tools that have enabled BlaBlaCar to create trust at scale and enable millions of people to share long-distance journeys.
