Challenge and Approach

  • People still drive despite the panopoly of transit options available to people in seattle
  • Cars are too still too convenient
  • Finding trusted carpoolers is hard

How do we get cars off the road?

  • Easy to use mobile app
  • Trusted carpoolers linked to well known companies
  • Employees can find colleagues to carpool with

"It’s an amazingly well-organized event that is extremely efficient, saving fuel and time. We estimated that 25,000 people casual carpool in D.C. each day. 
That takes a lot of cars off the road" - Mark Burris Texas Transportation Institute (TTI) Associate Research Engineer
