Abstract: Many transportation modes are available in our country but, still transportation is a major issue nowadays in metropolitan cities. Increase in number of cars on road leads to many problems such as traffic congestion, health problems, air pollution, environmental degradation etc. This problem can be reduced by using a mechanism called as “Cab sharing or pooling”, which allows you to share your cab with other passengers. Cab pooling is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a cab that reduces each person’s travelling cost such as fuel cost, stress of driving and security to passengers etc. In this paper we have proposed to develop an android based application which helps user to share expense, not worry about hiring a cab and making new connections.
