Aventones was a ride-sharing platform that promotes and facilitates the carpooling culture within trusted communities, such as companies, government agencies and universities. When the company first launched, corporate clients paid an annual fee to access a private network which helped users find relevant matches according to itinerary, schedules and empty seats. In 2013, the Company launched Rides, an online peer-to-peer marketplace connecting drivers with empty seats to passengers looking for a ride. In 2015, the Company was acquired by BlaBlaCar, the French leading car-sharing platform.
