Name Nebengers
Date 2012
Description Andreas Aditya Swasti, 26, established a community on Twitter called Nebengers in December 2011, in order to allow commuters with vacant seats on or in their vehicles to offer rides to those people without cars or bikes who need to travel in the same direction.
Nebengers, derived from the Indonesian word “nebeng” meaning free ride, is what Andreas calls a ‘virtual terminal’. The aim was simple: to help the city reduce its traffic jams by having groups of people traveling together; thereby reduce the number of vehicles on the roads, and also giving people a chance to make new friends. Through their Twitter account @nebengers, people with vacant seats in their vehicles can offer free rides to people, while those looking for transportation to particular destinations can do the same. Nebengers have more than 2,200 registered members on their list, which is available at nebengers.com.
