From richest of the world to poorest of poor, everyone is a commuter! Jump.in.Jump.out creators are commuter first and Hi-tech entrepreneurs later. Horrible traffic jams made us go bananas. Just like you, we went through a cycle of unbelief, anger, anguish and despair.
One day, while stuck in traffic, an epiphany hit us. In bumper-to-bumper traffic, every vehicle ensured that there is no empty space on the roadway. But when you looked inside the vehicle, most vehicles were wasting 75% - 80% of space. How? Each car carried a single person where the car could accommodate 4-5 people. We realized that this has to change and got to work.
Jump.in.Jump.out is not only a rideshare platform. It aims to make sharing economy the norm as opposed to novelty.

Jump.in.Jump.outis the latest in a series of social and ingenuous technology solutions from our stable. Our suite of transit applications under the name "SmartShehar" are already very popular with the commuters of Mumbai, India. All of our applications are location based, context-aware, dynamic and work towards solving a problem via technology. We do not believe in throwing technology peoples' way just because we can build it. We believe in solving real issues with real technology.
Ridesharing was never so easy! While creating a trip, users can notify their friends and/or communities. Everyone is sent a notification instantly. Users do not need to have the app ON to receive the notification. They can join the trip. From this point onwards, they are regularly notified of the vehicle's progress. They are notified when the vehicle starts moving, when the vehicle approaches nearetc. The vehicle can be tracked real-time to ensure no-one wastes time waiting on the road.
