Green Ride & Green Fleet
Greg Coniglio, Ecology and Environment, Inc
Ecology and Environment has used GIS to develop two programs that deal with managing ride sharing to save economic, environmental, and emissions resources. Green Ride is a web based application that allows the general public to enter their trip parameters and look for ride sharing partners that have the same commute pattern. Green Fleet is a web based management tool that allows organizations with a fleet of vehicles to more efficiently use their transportation resources through ride sharing. The details behind how these programs were implemented and how GIS was used was discussed.
