An Integrated Sustainability Model
RideW/Me enables peer-to-peer transportation planning, promotes peer-group travel, and motivates a shared-use mobility marketplace that will be fueled by local, community-based, social participation.
RideW/Me makes it easy for youth to find and access learning opportunities in their neighborhoods and beyond at local and remote cultural institutions around the Chicagoland area.
RideW/Me motivates a community-based shared-use mobility marketplace that can fuel neighborhood-based transportation options to invigorate local economies through the increase of lower-barrier-to-entry income-streams, reduced transportation costs, and through the economic impact provided by increased mobility options.
RideW/Me reduces the environmental impact of transit by promoting ridesharing, carpooling, ridesourcing, public transit, vanpools, jitneys, bikesharing, and simple, tried and true walking paths.
