    • Prevoz.org Ridesharing in Slovenia presented by jure@cuhalev.com Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Problem • Lots of Slovenian students study away from home in Ljubljana, Maribor or Koper • They’re max 2h of drive away from home or 2-3x that with public transport • Ad-hoc car sharing since it’s 3x cheaper than with public transport Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Solution • Online community http://prevoz.org that connect students with cars to students who need a ride • Built as a community project for students; no fee for site usage for anyone • Students just pay the money directly to each other as they share a ride Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • History and stats • Founded in 2004 • 1600+ rides offered every week • 14.000+ registered users • Price range of a ride: 5-10 eur • Popularity rises as fuel prices go up and economy weakens Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Lessons learned • Running community oriented sites online is cheap with all the open-source and students that are IT savvy • Hosting is also free if you partner with friendly NGO • Word of mouth inside the community will promote your project so you don’t need advertising budget • Community sites don’t need to make money. It would ruin our site. Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Technology changes • Running site for 5+ years thought us: • hardware and software evolved faster than our needs. Free speed and productivity boost. • Facebook became our #1 source of traffic as people share links. Before that we’ve seen hotmail, gmail and forums. • OpenID makes auth easier for everyone Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Impact on society • Prevoz.org is now a real alternative to public transportation between cities • Lots of people that commute, use it to supplement their income now • It makes living as a student cheaper as it’s now more likely that you’ll get a ride as there are more people offering one (basically all offered rides are cheaper and faster than train or a bus) Sunday, March 14, 2010
    • Future • As of November 2009, we’re offering cross- border car sharing. It’s now possible to find a ride to Austria, Italy, France, Serbia and many others • Next stage is creating translated site for other countries as well as provide mobile applications and a public API Sunday, March 14, 2010
