Ridesharing and On-Demand Shuttles

The future of mobility is upon us, and a smart plan to alleviate traffic embraces ridesharing options that were unthinkable even five years ago. Solutions include creating incentives to share a ride through services like Lyft Line, Waze Carpool and Uber Pool, and providing dynamically-routed shuttles that arrive when called for trips that public transportation doesn’t serve well. These options fill in the transportation gaps for people who want to get around without a car.
