Campus parking in high demand? High gas cost and increased commute cost causing pain to staff and students? Want to provide an option for students for using carpool for one-off long distance trips such as a trip home for the thanksgiving weekend? Or maybe as a university, you want to demonstrate leadership in responsibility towards the environment and reduce CO2 emissions?
Universities can now take advantage of the SmartRideshare software platform that has been designed to cater to the needs of student population, staff and faculty. SmartRideshare can be customized specific to your organization goals around reducing travel cost, emissions, parking demand and/or mobility. SmartRideshare combines ride matching, multi-modal trip log calendar, web-based incentive management and commute services such as emergency ride home, carpool parking management and transit pass incentive into one integrated system. This means your users do not have to visit different sites – one system caters to all their ride matching needs and related services.
SmartRideshare has pioneered the strategy of using local networks in combination with social networks such as Facebook and Twitter to maximize opportunities. Matched users are more likely to carpool or vanpool with others from the same university or next door neighbors. Similarly, matched users are more likely to connect with profiles that are credible (Facebook integration). The SmartRideshare platform provides all this information directly on the matchlist to build user confidence in the matches visible on the matchlist and maximize opportunities.
