Grocery shopping

Ridesharing allows drivers to offer their driving and car services to an organization to transport users as needed.

The rider pays the fare to the service provider who pays the driver.

The rider chooses where they’ll be picked up and where they want to be dropped off.


Informal but organized, a non-professional driver picks up one or more passengers to take a shared journey, often on a regular schedule (ex. co-workers, or students attending the same school).

Typically the driver shares her vehicle for a trip she is taking regardless of whether riders join her.

Riders share the cost of fuel and maintenance expenses.

Carpooling can help build social ties.

Reduces the number of cars on the road, lowering traffic jams and pollution.

Active Transportation

Using human generated power like biking and walking.

The option of electric bikes can make errands and even hauling small loads relatively easy.

Great for shorter trips.
