News Brief: Scoop is bringing its carpooling service to Portland, Ore. The Bay Area-based company offers an app that lets users carpool to work with colleagues and neighbors, matching them based on algorithms. Scoop focuses on partnering with large employers and city organizations; in Portland, it announced Oregon Health Science University as an early partner. Scoop launched in Seattle last year; it is also available in the Bay Area and Reno. It has facilitated more than two million rides and has raised $46 million. It competes with Google-owned Waze, which expanded its own carpooling app to Seattle last month.
