Scoop matches commuters with other passengers or drivers going your way and calculates everyone’s share of the ride. Riders pay a reduced rate to ride, which varies by pick up and drop off location. Drivers earn money for each rider driving to and from the north, east, or south bay. That’s a commuter win-win.
