    The thesis covers the entire development process of a flexible carpooling in real time solution with a detailed description of the prototype implementation. Solution proposes the creation of meeting places at important road junctions where drivers and passengers can meet and form carpools. During the transfer drivers must carry a mobile device capable of transmitting current driver's location, as this offers information about the distance and estimated time of arrival at the meeting place to passengers in real time. Transfer application process and electronic payment of transfer costs through the bitcoin payment system are implemented as well. The prototype consists of web and mobile application. The web application is implemented for the Google App Engine platform; its user interface was developed with Twitter Bootstrap framework and supports the HTML5 standard. Google Maps API is used for retrieval and manipulation of location data. Users must have a mobile device with our mobile application installed, which is used during transfer application process and enables us to monitor the driver's location. Thesis also contains the description of the difficulties encountered in development, potential upgrades and improvements to our solution and a look into the future of personal transportation.
