goloco (ride sharing)

the founder of zipcar, robin chase, has started a business where people can find friends or co-commuters can share a ride – called goloco.

according to many reports, there are about 75% of cars traveling somewhere only have one person in the vehicle. imagine if 1/2 of those had someone else in the car (going to work, returning home for spring break) had a second person in the car. less gas, less congestion, less pollution. wonderful!

taking a trip, driving to work – take a look. the cost is $1 for the riders and 10% commission for the driver. not a bad deal. this lady has the right ideas (with zipcar and goloco) – though the naming as some have pointed out is a bit concerning…
