Charles “Karel” Bouley isn’t afraid to say what’s on his mind. Karel is an entertainer, doing sold out live stage shows, television, film and, and a radio talk show seven days a week. His interview with Paul Steinberg September 21, 2014 at 8pm PST highlights the differences between legal ridesharing and Transportation Network Companies and the vast price difference for commuters heading over the Bay Bridge.
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.
Jeffrey Schaub of KGO Radio talks with Paul Steinberg about the upcoming parking increases for Larkspur ferry riders. Carma operates a federally funded pilot in the San Francisco Bay Area designed to help reduce congestion by helping neighbors rideshare together to save on gas and now parking fees at the terminal.
