Ridesharing – The Wave of the Future?
The first step to an effective parking demand reduction strategy is to make sure there are alternatives to driving alone available to your commuters. One of the most accessible alternatives to solo driving is ridesharing. It’s available in any setting, but it’s often wildly underutilized.
It’s not enough to just provide a campus-wide ridesharing network. If you want your faculty, staff, and students to share rides you have to educate them about the benefits, reassure them against the perceived negatives, and encourage them to give it a try.
