BlaBlaCar withstands the crisis with 50 million passengers in 2020

As 2020 ends, BlaBlaCar looks back positively on a year marked by the COVID-19 crisis. Despite the drop in activity in Spring, 50 million passengers travelled by carpool or bus with BlaBlaCar around the world, demonstrating the resilience of its community-based travel network.

Paris – Dec 18, 2020

While most transport networks have been severely affected by the crisis, BlaBlaCar maintained more than 70% of its activity with 50 million passengers travelling in carpool or buses in 2020 (versus 70 million in 2019).

“We reacted fast since the very beginning of the crisis to cut our costs, protect our talents and stay in touch with our community. Although our activity dropped in Spring, its fast recovery during the summer outstands our expectations. These exceptional circumstances showed the agility of our distributed people-powered transport network and the resilience of a true asset-light and highly fragmented marketplace model.”
- Nicolas Brusson, co-founder and CEO of BlaBlaCar

Passengers and drivers have continued to share rides because they are reassured by the respect of sanitary guidelines and because carpooling is a means of transportation that minimises the number of contacts between individuals compared to other means of transportation.
