flinc is the world’s first social mobility network which matches drivers and passengers for ridesharing in real-time using desktop, smartphone and navigation technology.
Gas prices are rising, carbon emissions need to be reduced and roads are congested: the challenges for individual mobility seem unsurmountable. The German start-up flinc is now launching its new service nationwide based on a revolutionary concept: Instead of building a new infrastructure, flinc addresses the large number of existing passenger vehicles and aims to increase their occupancy on daily routes. It combines state-of-the art technology with social networking to offer a dynamic, safe and automated service that gets you from A to B.
By using their desktop, smartphone or navigation device flinc users can easily be matched in real-time with members from their trusted social mobility network and share long or short rides. As a world first, flinc is integrated in navigation software.
With flinc, drivers can reduce their mobility costs drastically with a minimum of effort. It only takes one click to start using flinc – to see friends, go shopping or commuting. The integration in navigation software enables the driver to navigate directly to the passenger. For flinc-riders, a smartphone changes into a real alternative to the privately owned vehicle. Pre-planned or in real-time, flinc can establish a ride and can take passengers from any location to the destination of their choice. flinc’s intelligent route matching finds riders anywhere along the route of the driver.
