Sameride started a new commute route between residential areas in Stafford, VA / Fredericksburg, VA and employment centers in Washington, DC with over 100 commuters registered.
Sameride Commute announced a new solution for on-demand carpool on express lanes. It is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices.
The meetup of “Transportation Techies” focused on how the sharing economy could improve commuting. A digitally promoted slug line could whisk commuters by making use of high-occupancy vehicle lanes.
Mobility Lab sponsored Transportation Techies: Playing with Traffic II, in WeWork Crystal City, a group of programmers presented some of the ways people are sharing rides and cars in the D.C. region.
Slugging, or “casual carpooling,” allows commuters to take advantage of HOV and HOT express lanes along the I-95/495/395 corridors for faster and more cost-effective commutes. However, it has been difficult for commuters to establish new slugging routes.
