Unlike taxi apps such as Uber or Grab, Wunder drivers are non-profit, offering up empty seats in their cars on the way to the office with minimal detour. 

The most popular professions among Wunder drivers are IT/Engineering, Financial Services and Management. The average driver in 2016 shared 14 rides per month and saved between Php3,000 and Php5,000 pesos per month. 

The total savings for car owners who share seats consistently with 2-3 passengers can add up quickly over Php50,000 pesos in one year as per Wunder.

80% of active drivers’ passengers are repeat carpoolers they met through Wunder and have become their new "Wunder buddies".

"In 2016 the Wunder Carpoool community proved that we don’t need more vehicles or flashy services to solve the problem of congestion in Metro Manila: We need to fill empty seats. Last year 200,000 people came together, and without adding a single car to the road, helped over a 1 million people get to work." said Sam Baker, Wunder COO.
"One of the most popular questions in Wunder’s community support email is when Wunder will be available to residents of Cebu. I’m happy say that it will be next week!", said Sam Baker, Wunder COO.

Wunder will be announcing a series of launches in new cities locally throughout the beginning of 2017. So stay tuned for more updates soon!
