Frequently asked questions
What is "Carpool to work"?
Carpool To Work is a smart mobility initiative in collaboration with the Norwegian startup SammeVei. The goal is to create enthusiasm around smart, green mobility technology, and make everyone participant try carpooling at least once between September 3rd and October 14th. At the end of the campaign, we hope to have established carpooling network to Fornebu, making you everyday life a little bit easier. Increased carpooling from time to time will free up time, reduce commuting costs and traffic. At the end of the campaign, employees themselves can continue to sustain and grow the carpooling network.
Carpool To Work starts September 3rd and lasts through October 14th. We hope as many employees as possible get the chance to try carpooling with a colleague at least once via the SammeVei app. Try carpooling once, and make up your mind after.
Between August 13th and September 2nd, interested employees get to test carpooling and the SammeVei app alongside the founders of SammeVei. SammeVei will host exciting workshops and info sessions for everyone who's interested in learning more about mechanics, design and more behind SammeVei. Test user will also get the chance to influence the SammeVei app before the campaign starts.
how can i sign up for carpool to work?
why carpool to work?
A survey conducted by NAF suggests that one out of three employees would carpool to work, given that there was a sufficient carpooling infrastructure. As organisations situated at Fornebu, we wish to do something about that. Therefore, we collaborate with SammeVei, a Norwegian smart mobility startup. We hope to give every employee who wishes to carpool to work the possibility to do so.
do i have to carpool to work every day?
No, of course not. Carpooling is not everyone and is not possible every day either for those interested. Employees are free to use SammeVei as many times as they wish. Throughout the campaign, there will be certain carpooling days, where as many employees as possible may try to carpool with a colleague. We hope as many as possible get the chance to carpool with a colleague once, using the SammeVei app. The more people being active in SammeVei's carpooling network, the better are your chances to find someone to commute with.
Why carpool with a colleague to work?
Help a colleague save time. Offer a ride to a colleague along your route and help him/her save up to 45 minutes, each way to Fornebu.
Save time yourself. Fed up with traffic jam? So are we! Drivers of electric vehicles get access to the HOV during rush hour. Pick up a colleague going the same way and drive past the morning traffic. Take a 2-3 minutes detour to pick up a colleague, save half an hour of traffic jam every day. Save 30 minutes every day and spend more time with friends and family.
Save money. Drivers and passengers using the SammeVei app can save money by splitting the cost of the commute in half.
Have a good chat with colleagues from different departments. Carpooling to work is social! We bet there are a good amount of colleagues you haven't met yet or do not know as good as you wish to. Share a ride with a fellow commuter, have a good chat and time flies by. Actually, carpooling is simple yet very efficient team building.
Reduce CO2 emission. Share a ride with a colleague instead of driving alone, and you have already taken one car off the street. Less cars mean less pollution, noise, traffic and better parking possibilities and fresher air.

how does the sammevei app work?
After downloading the app, you create a profile and go through an onboarding process. Where do you want to commute, when, as a passenger or driver?
Now you are all set for your first commute. Activate a trip for tomorrow or up to one week in advance. You can activate up to two trips per day, to and from work. If you want to carpool the next day, make sure to activate a rip before 9pm the day before. At 10pm, you will be notified where another commuter has activated a relevant trip. By activating a trip, you accept to rideshare, given that you get a match.
Given that another commuter has activated a relevant trip, SammeVei will match you. Driver click the "Start trip" button when they are on their way. Passenger then receive a notification with information that the driver has started driving. Furthermore, passengers can now see the drivers car on the map, so that they can make sure be at the correct pick up location at the correct time. Have a good trip!
After a trip, users get the possibility to rate the other.
Notifications and location services. In oder for SammeVei to work properly, notifications and location settings have to be turned on.
