Carpool’N’College is a mobile app that helps individuals who are driving long distances to stay alert, awake and save money on gas by pairing them with fellow college students. The app will allow drivers that have an account with the app to plug in a date, location and the amount of passengers his or her car can hold. The driver can specify how close the passengers locations are from his or her destination, ranging from 5 to 50 miles. The app will then notify other users with the same specifications and pair them together. Each profile will have a short description and a picture that each user can look at before connecting to either the driver or passenger. Once connected, the app will allow the individuals to communicate with each other over a messaging system and enable them to share contact information. After the driver confirms the amount of passengers, he or she can input the cars mpg, distance traveled, the number of passengers and the average cost of gas. The app will then calculate how much each individual riding in the car will have to pay for gas. The app will have the option to pay the driver directly through the app by using a credit/debit card. This app is strictly a school app and can only be used by students with a school email.
