tripBuddy is a Boston, MA community based carpooling platform for co-workers and employees to carpool to work together. The company provides a mobile based platform (Android and iOS) where users can enter their commute information and be matched with others who share a similar route.
The idea was born in 2014 Raheem went to grad school after spending a few years in the industry working as a software engineer at Oracle and Sanblaze. It started off as a side project to help college students move around on college campus. The first version was an Android app and Raheem used the project to learn the Android framework.
In 2018 tripBuddy was accepted into MassChallenge and Raheem quit his job to focus on tripBuddy full time. During that period, the product was rebuilt and tripBuddy was re-launched that year at MassChallenge in Boston. It was the transportation app that event attendees used as a means of getting to the awards showcase.
