Strategy AC6.1: Promote alternative shared transportation models, such as ride-sharing and park-and-ride services. Utilize new technologies, such as web-based tools and apps, to improve carpooling.
Rising gas costs, transportation preferences, and the rise of the sharing economy have led to a carpooling renaissance. Advances in technology and social media are making it easier for individuals to connect and share the cost of driving. Local carpooling websites connect riders with common points of arrival and departure.
