Car pooling / ride sharing project

Technical Report:

Abstract

A car pooling scheme known as Easy Share was developed using a computer program to match car trips so that ride sharing becomes an option for a community as a means of reducing transport costs and conserving energy. The study also considered factors which might affect the success of a scheme including ease of use, reliability and convenience of door to door travel. A survey found 44% of drivers to be interested in the scheme. The optimum membership for a city the size of Melbourne was 150,000 to achieve an 80% car pooling matching success rate. 14 figs.
