Gurgaon: A car pooling database for Delhi and NCR was released on Tuesday in a bid to encourage people to share their ride to work to reduce traffic and pollution, a Gurgaon police officer said.

"This database will be a tool to look beyond car pooling by individuals and bus sharing by organisations. It will be a way ahead to use existing corporate and institutional data to reduce traffic and pollution in Gurgaon, Delhi and NCR," a police spokesman said.

There are more than 100,000 commuters in Delhi-NCR. The current consortium members, including Snapdeal, Fidelity, Authbridge, Fractal Analytics, Genpact, Covergys, and many more, see the value in moving beyond car pooling between individuals to possible bus pooling between clusters of companies or at least providing data to private or public bus operators to optimise their routes.

This open commuting database will help corporates to jointly plan their office transport efficiently by replacing office cabs and individual cars with CNG buses, the officer said.
