Transit Marketplace: In order to provide more financially accessible transportation options, RideW/Me would enable an open marketplace for shared-use and peer-to-peer riding solutions.
Pick-up Routing: Service providers would use RideW/Me to map pick-up routes based on student commitments to be used when hiring transportation providers like school bus services. Bus or van drivers with the RideW/Me app could follow a route; youth could check-in when boarding a ride; service providers could track pick-ups or drop-offs.
