2013 SEED Low Carbon Award Winner Green Technologies Hà Nội, Viet Nam

Dichung.vn is a niche social network combined with an e-commerce marketplace. It connects people who need a ride with others who want to share or sell free seats in their vehicles. The goal of the free C2C platform is to create a ride-sharing culture in Vietnam. Dichung.vn acts as a middleman, bringing users together and overcoming barriers to sharing vehicles. It also works with a transport company to provide standardised ride-sharing services (taxi-sharing, van pools) via a B2C platform.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

Dichung.vn offers a cheaper, greener transport option for low-income communities and people with disabilities.
  • Helping connect people concerned about environmental problems and educate them on climate change.
