Carma and Toyota Double Car Occupancy

Carma and Toyota Double Car Occupancy

PLANO, TX (Nov. 13, 2018) – Carma Technology Corporation and Toyota Motors North America are successfully concluding a pilot demonstration of traffic-busting technology that provided shared transportation services for team members at Toyota’s North American headquarters in Plano. The pilot focuses on measuring and growing car occupancy rates, thereby reducing impact on local traffic congestion, air pollution and parking demand.

Carpooling Co-Workers Simplify Their Commute

In honor of National Simplify Your Life week, our Carma team is spending time at the Toyota Motors North America headquarters in order to help more of their team members take a step towards simplifying the way they get to work.

Carma Share commuters say sharing the ride with Carma helps them save time, money and aggravation. And with 29 easy-access departure locations, Carma’s all-inclusive commute service offers many other noteworthy benefits:  

  • In-app registration, license verification and booking
  • Tolls, gas, insurance and maintenance are all included
  • A friendly voice on the phone to assist commuters during any step along the way—from registration to locking the car
  • Premium parking in all four Toyota garages
  • Predictable work schedule leading to increased work/life balance
  • Guaranteed ride home in case of emergency or late meetings
  • Networking and meeting other team members who live in the same communities
  • Midday vehicles available for lunches and appointments during the work day through Carma Errand

Life is full of challenges. At Carma, we don’t believe your commute has to be one of them.

Now that over 100 TMNA Team Members are sharing the ride to work with Carma, the company rewarded commuters with an ice cream party on May 31, 2018.  Carma Share commuters were treated to an unlimited sundae bar with ice cream flavors and toppings galore. 

Current ride sharers were encouraged to invite team members to come and learn more about getting to TMNA together with Carma.  They indulged in sundaes while the Carma Team answered questions, demonstrated bookings through the app, and noted requests for future routes and schedules.  

Clearly Toyota Team Members are not vanilla!  As the 2 1/2 hour come-and-go party wrapped up, only a few scoops of ice cream remained.  Chocolate, strawberry and vanilla were enjoyed by all!

Toyota is an industry leader recognized globally for its cutting-edge, innovative company culture. Therefore, it was no surprise their employees showed up by the hundreds on May 22, 2018, when Carma hosted Cupcakes with Carma, offered Toyota team members the opportunity to learn more about our corporate rideshare program at their Plano headquarters.

In addition to the delicious cupcakes and great conversations that took place during the informal, come and go style gathering, Carma employees gave live demos to Toyota team members showing them how easy it is to use the service. Toyota team members were also encouraged to suggest new departure times and locations for consideration as the community continues to grow.

Multiple team members made their first booking using the Carma Share app during the event, making Cupcakes with Carma a true success.
