Smerle is a commuter transportation company that will transform your daily commute into an affordable, comfortable and enjoyable experience. Unlike other ride-sharing or carpooling apps, we employ trained drivers who drive their qualified personal vehicles for maximum safety and reliability. Our smart algorithm allows excellent commuter matching, providing you great schedule flexibility.*** SMERLE SERVICE IS BY INVITE ONLY! YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE APP TO ADD YOUR COMMUTE AND WE WILL EMAIL YOU AN INVITE WHEN WE HAVE SUFFICIENT USERS SHARING YOUR COMMUTE.
SMERLE IS CURRENTLY OPERATING ONLY IN THE SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA. IF YOU ARE OUTSIDE THE BAY AREA, PLEASE ADD YOUR COMMUTE AND TELL US WHERE TO EXPAND NEXT. ***
Smerle is not just an app. It is a complete commuter transportation solution!
Almost all carpooling apps act as the connection service between drivers and riders for a shared commute. However they suffer from poor reliability, schedule inflexibility and drive alone commuters unwilling to make multiple stops.
In comparison, Smerle combines the comfort and flexibility of a chauffeured private car with the affordability of public transportation to offer a unique, shared commuting solution.
How it works?
1. Join Smerle- Use of Smerle is by invite only. Join Smerle by adding your commute information using the Smerle app. We will email you an invite to experience the Smerle benefits as soon as we have enough people sharing a similar commute.
2. Reserve your ride- Once invited, register and tell us when you want to leave at least 1 hour before your departure time. Feel free to put your phone away and go about your routine while we work our magic!
3. Relax- Our smart algorithm guarantees a ride every time, with pick-up typically within +/- 15 minutes from requested departure time. Well send you a notification with your exact ride information including your van and driver details, actual pick-up time and estimated arrival time.
4. Get ready to go- Well send you another notification when your driver is ~5 minutes away and another with a 30 seconds timer, when your ride is at your door or pick-up location. Please be on time to reduce overall commute time for everyone.
Affordable- Save up to 70% of your drive alone commute expenses.
Comfort- Ride like a boss in our qualified mini-vans with ample space and privacy.
Schedule flexibility- You are never tied to one driver or any group of commuters. Enjoy complete control over when you commute (within Smerle operating hours) and your ride is guaranteed every single time!
Safety- Every driver is a Smerle employee and in a lot of cases your co-worker! Drivers receive extensive training and background check and the vehicles receive regular maintenance and cleaning.
Environment friendly- Every Smerle vehicle removes an average of more than 10 cars off the road during peak commute hours leading to considerably less traffic and pollution.
