Rodney District Council has launched new rideshare software, asking the public to find a name to reflect the new service.

Recommended by Resolve Group, the new software will enable anyone in the Kowhai Coast area (Wellsford to Puhoi) to access a web-based application that allows them to pair up drivers and passengers. It is a win-win situation for residents who can find out if anyone is going their way and might like to offer or share a ride.

The Council has fully embraced the initiative and hopes it will improve parking hassles as well as contribute to reducing traffic and lowering travel costs.
