Scoop has announced that it has closed a $60 million round led by Activate Capital with participation from Goldman Sachs, NGP Capital, Total Group, BNP Capital and others to fuel its expansion and growth.
This round brings Scoop’s total funding to $106 million.
Launched in 2015, Tech Crunch reports that Scoop is a corporate carpooling service that works with LinkedIn, Workday, T-Mobile and more than 50 other companies, in an effort to help its employees get to and from work.
Scoop trips are pre-scheduled and its algorithms work to automatically create the most efficient carpools based on routes, detours, company preference, favourites and more.
According to Tech Crunch Scoop currently operates in more than 2,000 cities across six major metro areas, including the San Francisco Bay Area, Seattle, Portland, Reno and Los Angeles. To date it has reportedly facilitated 7 million carpool trips.
