In August 2016 a new app based on demand shared ride service ‘Slide’ was launched in Bristol, the first of its kind in the UK. Developed by French Group RATP Dev, customers use an Uber style booking interface to locate a vehicle and pick up point close to their home. The service covers key car commuting routes around Bristol and runs at peak commuting times. If the service continues to be successful it will reduce emissions from private cars as well as inner city congestion. Bristol is the tenth most congested city in the UK.
