Casual Carpooling with an App
Mark Jones of the Metropolitan Transportation Commission (MTC 511.org) covers the real-time ridesharing Carma project in the San Francisco East Bay. Funded by the Federal Government, MTC awarded Sonoma, Marin and Contra Costa counties a Climate Mitigation Grant (CMAQ) to expand casual carpooling into the suburbs. This is a behind the scenes look at the program through the eyes of two commuters that use Carma to commute from Walnut Creek into Bishop Ranch employment center in San Ramon, CA.
