Spacer Technologies, a prominent player in asset optimization, has acquired the commute assets of Scoop Technologies, rebranding them as Scoop Commute. This acquisition is part of Spacer’s strategy to expand its mobility services across the U.S., Canada, and Australia. The app facilitates carpooling for co-workers and neighbors, aiming to reduce commuting costs, traffic congestion, and pollution while enhancing social bonds during daily commutes. Since its inception, the app has enabled over 10 million trips, saving approximately 3.5 million gallons of fuel. Corporate partnerships also incentivize employees to carpool, furthering sustainability goals. Michael Rosenbaum, CEO of Spacer, highlights the acquisition as a step towards higher efficiency and improved commuter experiences, with Jeremy Zuker poised to lead Scoop Commute’s growth. This move aligns with projections indicating that by 2025, around 45 million vehicles globally will participate in carpool programs.
