Forum Post: LOGISTICS: RideShare "User Map" inefficient.

we need a better "site" for rideshare. The user map is a nice idea but ineffective.

If you're a "Driver" you should be able to post your route, how many seats you have left, etc. If you're an "Occupier" you need to be able to post your location. When an occupier gets picked up by a driver there needs some level of automation that removes irrelevant data.

Anyways, Just an idea. I'm more focused on getting people to WANT to get out there at the moment. It would be easier if there were a resource like this.

I was going to code exactly this from the beginning where a good map shows up with blue lines for all the driving routes and you can click to get in touch, but didn't have the time ._. Now that we have the funds available to start seriously consider renting buses I think I'll do it again, both for buses and carpools.

I think shuttles would be good idea...a fleet of vans at our disposal with volunteer drivers who go and come to the site.

occupiers and drivers need to be able to contact each other and vica versa
