Evidence exists to suggest that ridesharing would have a positive impact on congestion


claim it will reduce traffic congestion. They say it will come from accident reduction, closer spacing of vehicles at higher speeds, and of course (they say): it will be easier for people to share trips in autonomous cars. Based on results of efforts to increase ridesharing to date, it


might be an order of magnitude easier to create self-driving cars and legislation to let them drive on our roads and streets than to get unrelated people to share the trip. If we do not solve the latter the former might not deliver as much traffic congestion reduction benefits as these proponents claim. For ITS professionals, what aspects of car design might make it easier for people to share trips once the car has no driver? I think the autonomous car could make a tremendous dif-


ference. The most interesting potential, I think, is the first- mile capability that will get people to public transport hubs. No parking hassles at the park-and-ride, and the car drives home to be used by other family members during the day. This does presuppose that the soon to be former driver has a propensity to use public transport, and that there is capacity on that system. So there you have it: three trains of thought for the smart


people who read this magazine to perhaps develop some solutions that help road-based commuters, and others, to increase the rate at which they catch rides. Please add to this list if you have further ideas, and let the Ridesharing Institute hear what you think would work to increase passengership.
