O’Way! Let’s talk about public transportation

The idea :

Monday. 8:30 am On the platform waiting for the next subway, RER, train … We all have a nasty reflex: Ignore other passengers. At this rate, we are millions to take transport every day without saying a word! And if this word was enough to change our daily life? O’Way! The mobile application to discuss with other passengers on the same route. It can change our life? O’Way! Maybe our soul mate, our future employer, our future co-founder are in the same wagon as us. So do not wait on the platform and board.

Operation :

Very simply, the user:

  • Informs you of your journey
  • Creates or joins a group of passengers in relation to ongoing discussions (Group description, topic of discussion, number of participants). The topics of discussion may be around the news, a particular focus but also announcements, a job search …
  • And it only remains to discuss, discuss and then meet who knows …

Why this idea might work (why this startup succeeds) :

Social entrepreneurship has great things to do and it is the belief that together we will contribute to a better world. Without realizing it, there are millions of opportunities for us on public transport. These transports represent finally a formidable space gathering millions of passengers without any effort, having needs, competences but especially full of common points of which the first, the route.

It’s time to enjoy and exploit them!

Originality :

The originality of this idea is that we have transcended our limited vision of transport that dictates that transport is delays, incidents, discomfort … But would all these problems be as important if we shared our trip with other travelers?

The source of all these problems is not structural or institutional but only human.
