"The night my daughter didn't come home was the catalyst for SKOOT". Greg's daughter spent the night giving lifts to friends via social media, as alternatives are too expensive and include potential stranger danger. SKOOT is a safer, sustainable option for every drive & lift.
We're driving the Carbon Negative Movement today with the 1M Tree Challenge. SKOOT plants a tree for every journey on the platform. Win-win travel.
Whether it's driving on your own, using our "green" navigation, or lift-sharing (as restrictions ease) our in-built features can co-ordinate journeys & share/split costs.
