Government Commuting Initiatives

Looking ahead to what urban transportation will be like 10 to 20 years from now.

The heyday of the single-occupancy vehicle is in decline, and government commuting planners are looking forward to a future where people are less reliant on personal vehicles and make more efficient use of alternatives like mass transit, ride-sharing, walking and biking. So where, exactly, is commuting headed? How will it be different in a decade or two than it is right now?

Experts say that the big changes aren’t going to be in the modes of transportation people use. Subways, trams and streetcars, commuter trains and buses will still make up the lion’s share of urban mass transit, and walking and cycling will still rank among the primary alternatives. While newer concepts like vanpooling and ride-sharing seem to be in line for a spike in use, the real innovation isn’t going to come from the methods of transportation themselves; it’s going to come from the way people use them.

Everything about commuting will be integrated. Some pundits are even predicting that cities will be able to remove four out of every five cars currently on the road. But what about today? What can be done right now to help make this future a reality sooner?

Transportation patterns seen in younger demographics point the way forward for government commuting planners.

Looking at the millennial generation, it’s clear that walking, biking, public transportation and ride-sharing are viewed as far more viable transportation options than single-occupancy vehicles. When traveling by car is an absolute necessity, alternatives like ride-sharing and vanpooling are preferred approaches. Transportation industry insiders are unanimous in saying that the biggest leaps forward will come when the technology to make better use of these alternatives is put in the hands of a broader base of commuters.

Apps are going to be game-changers. Users will be able to plan trips within seconds, weighing the costs and benefits of the various alternatives available and instantly accessing detailed multimodal route information based on current weather and traffic conditions. In fact, those apps and technology platforms are<already available.

Ridesharing Management

Ridesharing Management Tools and Apps

Advanced ridesharing management tools give you the power to make a positive impact.

The early years of the 21st century have seen an increasing interest in carpooling, and ridesharing management technology makes it easier than ever to connect and manage people who want to share rides. Cloud-based management software gives commuters the tools to carpool with coworkers and neighbors who want to save money and reduce congestion.

Modern ride-sharing takes many forms, but they all share the same set of objectives:

  • Ridesharing reduces pollution caused by greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Commuters who share rides can save big on their monthly transportation costs.
  • Carpooling helps participants forge and develop new personal and professional connections.
  • People who take part in ridematching programs report lower levels of commute-related stress than solo drivers.
  • Carpooling helps reduce commute times by giving access to specialized infrastructure like high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes.

Businesses and organizations of all shapes and sizes are taking notice of the benefits of promoting carpooling, and ridesharing software adoption rates are rising fast across the country. In addition to the community and commuter benefit, businesses and organizations win big when commuters carpool in larger numbers:

  • Increasing carpooling can reduce parking demand, saving businesses money on parking costs.
  • Ridesharing has been statistically shown to increase employee productivity and job satisfaction rates.
  • A strong culture of social responsibility helps businesses attract and retain higher-quality employees.
