The go-to app for shared travel.
Paris, France

Our Mission

To be the go-to app for shared travel and fill every empty seat on the road! #ZeroEmptySeats

Born from a simple idea of people sharing their ride at scale, BlaBlaCar's mission is to solve low car occupancy at a global scale and make the world of travel more accessible, affordable, people and environmentally friendly.


BlaBlaCar's wants to become the go-to app for shared travel. They're leveraging technology to fill every empty seat on the road, therefore avoiding 1.6 million tons of CO2 a year! At its core, BlaBlaCar has a human mission: to foster social connection while giving users the freedom to choose who they travel with. BlaBlaCar's founders have been committed to including more women in tech since day one. 

With its comprehensive Women in Tech action plan—which includes a special sourcing strategy for female talents, as well as unconscious bias trainings and fostering ties with various communities—this company is truly on the right path!
