This paper looks into the rapid growth of staff and students in Middle East College. Increase in college population and thus resulting in insufficient transportation facilities. Staffs and students prefer to use their own vehicle to commute to college rather using an alternative method. This leads to problems like increase number of vehicles, traffic, parking problems, fuel combustion etc. To overcome this problem Smart Peer Car Pooling System can be used, in which people travelling from nearby source can share the ride to college. Smart Peer Car Pooling System (SPCPS) can be a solution for the given problems. It is an effective means of reducing traffic congestion, waiting time, wastage of resources and fuel consumption, improving social life, reducing the number of accidents and environmental pollution which in turn results in green environment, boosting the economy of the Sultanate of Oman, wellbeing and improving the quality of life of the people. Governments and institutions encourage carpooling to increase high-occupancy vehicle lanes rather than commuters. In this paper, a smart model for Smart Peer Carpooling System will be introduced which is both architecture and business model approaches tested to find solutions for the system based on sustainable mobility.
