In April 2020, the free ride platform BlaBlaCar announced the launch of BlaBlaHelp, a new app that aims to help people make purchases during a pandemic. Users can register to volunteer to make purchases in pharmacies and supermarkets while people vulnerable to the virus, such as the elderly and those with diseases, can find reliable profiles to help them.

The platform is the result of an internal hackaton promoted by the company in order to find solutions to the Covid-19 crisis.
