Abstract

The paper contains a brief description of analysis done in literature addressing the problem of using carpooling systems. Significant economic, technical and legal aspects have been discussed. It may be observed that certain possibilities and financial profits lead to the fact that carpooling solutions are commonly used, especially by young people. After a short introduction into the subject, examples of carpooling systems such as BlaBlaCar, Inonecar, Autem.pl, JedziemyRazem.pl have been characterized and analyzed. The next part consists of a presentation of the economic aspects. Part three consists of the technical aspects. In part four there is a description of the legal situation of the passenger and of the driver from the corporate, civil, insurance, tax and criminal law perspectives. Finally, a case study has been presented. The authors have used a selected system to travel to conferences in countries in Europe: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Germany, Sweden. Brief conclusions end the paper. The main method used in this research was case study. In addition, the work contains assumptions regarding the further development of carpooling systems, both among individuals and business people. Carpooling systems may be used by individuals and business people to save money and time, however the disadvantages should be taken into consideration as well.
