Car Pooling with the Help of Google Maps
LaRoueVerte (the Green Wheel) is a French car pooling service that uses Google Maps to help users easily find or offer a car pool ride.
To find the nearest drivers willing to share a car journey the user simply needs to enter their starting point and destination. The route is then displayed on Google Maps and markers show all the nearest car pooling offers for the journey.
The details of the car pool offers are also displayed in the map sidebar with a handy meter guide to how closely the owner's journey matches the searched request.
