We recently conducted a survey for our new Real-Time Ridesharing pilot and got a great response, with over 1,000 taking the survey. Over 50% said they would likely or definitely try a real-time ridesharing system as currently planned (which will include incentives for pilot participants). Nearly 60% said they would try the system if gas prices went up to $5/gallon – which seems all too likely at the moment.
This is a promising response to a brief description of the system. We look forward to incorporating all the great suggestions we received and making the final product even better.
We also got a big response from universities and colleges, with over half of responses coming from students and staff. You can check out the full results on a new webpage for the real-time ridesharing pilot.
