Thanks to the introduction of modern technology, the commuting experience within the greater Boston region has dramatically shifted towards efficient and transparent solutions. Commuters now expect real-time information displays on subway arrivals, can track busses from the comfort of the corner store, are able to check out a shared bicycle spur of the moment or even monitor traffic conditions so as to make last second adjustments to driving routes. One mode that has yet to experience this high-tech influence in Metro Boston is peer-to-peer carpooling.
Imagine the potential to reduce drive alone vehicle trips if commuters could decide hours to minutes in advance if they wanted to carpool and be matched with a rider traveling a similar route. No long-term relationship, no need for pre-planning; simply filling an empty seat in a vehicle that is traveling the same direction you are.
