  • Patent number: 10798045
    Abstract: A computing system can receive a pick-up request including a carpool service preference from a requesting user. The system can access user data of the requesting user and a plurality of potential carpool riders, and determine one or more common links between the requesting user and each of one or more carpool riders of the plurality of potential carpool riders. The system may then select the one or more carpool riders to ride with the requesting user in the carpool vehicle, and transmit a notification to the requesting user to indicate the one or more common links between the requesting user and each of the one or more carpool riders.

  • Publication number: 20190208362
    Abstract: A network system for managing an on-demand service can receive, from a user, a service request indicating a destination location. In addition to facilitating available service providers to fulfill the service request, the network system can create and manage a session for the user for an entity identified based on, for example, the destination location. The session for the user can be used to procure items and/or services provided by the entity. The network system can transmit, to terminal computing system(s) associated with the entity, session initiation data that includes user data such as identification information to identify the user. The transmission of the session initiation data can cause the terminal computing system(s) to automatically create the session for the user. In addition, the network system can receive, from the terminal computing system(s), session data upon termination of the session for the user.

  • Patent number: 10291574
    Abstract: A transport arrangement and networking system can receive pick-up requests from user devices of requesting users. The pick-up requests can include a carpool service preference. The system can transmit an invitation to a driver device of a proximate carpool driver to service each received pick-up request and identify carpool riders riding with each requesting user. The system can further access social media data for the requesting user and the carpool riders. When the accessed social media data indicates a common link between the requesting user and the carpool rider(s) the system can generate and transmit a notification to the requesting user indicating the common link.

  • Publication number: 20190050775
    Abstract: A system is provided to access at least a first data source of a user, to identify an indicator of an upcoming event. The system determines a category for the event, as well as a set of service-related parameters for the event. The system may generate a workflow that is specific to at least one of the category or the set of service-related parameters, to determine a set of configuration parameters. In some examples, a request interface is provided, having a feature from which the user can generate a service request for the event. An aspect of the feature may be based at least in part on the set of configuration parameters. Additionally, in some examples, a set of service-related parameters may be associated with the feature, so that when the service request is generated, the generated service request dynamically incorporates information corresponding to the set of service-related parameters.

  • Publication number: 20180315021
    Abstract: A network system is capable of facilitating network services to be performed in connection with the events created by users. Based on a created event, event invitations can be transmitted to recipients specified in the created event. Upon receiving acceptances in response to the event invitations, the network system can be configured to identify service providers to render services to the recipients in connection with the event. One or more geo-fenced and time-bound gifts or discounts can be specified to be applied to the services rendered in connection with the event.

  • Publication number: 20180315088
    Abstract: A network system for managing network services over a given geographic area includes a recommendation engine for generating recommendations and/or promotions based on context information. Context information can include information relating to a user maintained or stored by the network system. Context information can further include information relating to a service requested by the user. In addition, context information can include information received from third-party sources such as an establishment visited by the user, a calendar service, or a financial transaction service. Based on the context information, the recommendation engine can select appropriate promotions and generate suitable recommendations for the user. In doing so, the recommendation engine can deliver particularly suitable promotions and/or recommendations at times the user is able to take action on the promotions and/or recommendations.

  • Publication number: 20180232789
    Abstract: A method for providing media for use with on-demand transport services is provided. A transport service is arranged for a user. The user is determined to have requested control over media to be outputted on an output device of the driver. A token of the user is identified and transmitted to the driver's computing device. In response to detecting that an event has occurred for enabling the user to control the media, the driver's computing device is enabled to output the media that is controlled by the user operating the user's computing device.

  • Publication number: 20170351977
    Abstract: A system to facilitate user action is disclosed. The system receives a first set of data indicating a request and an event identifier from an event provider device, and generates and transmits a first notification based, at least in part, on the first set of data to a set of identified users. The system can receive an acceptance from a user device of a first user of the set of identified users, send a second notification to the provider device, and subsequently coordinate a transport service for the first user.

  • Publication number: 20170034085
    Abstract: A computing device can execute a messaging application corresponding to a messaging service and display a user interface comprising a messaging thread between a user of the mobile computing device and at least a second user, the messaging thread including textual content corresponding to a location. The computing device can then receive a user selection of the textual content, and generate a selectable transport request feature on the display to overlay at least a portion of the messaging thread. In various implementations, the selectable transport request feature can enable the user to request transport from a transportation arrangement service.
