yes, you're right - nobody wants to waste time picking-up and dropping off multiple people. Therefore, this service (called JobRide) avoids this. It groups people by place of living and place of working and collects them at one pick-up place and drops them all at one drop-off place. No stops in between.
yes, scoop is similar to this, but as Hannibal mentioned above...there is significant time spent on multiple pick-ups and drop-offs.
