This document describes a three-year plan, as developed for the US DOE National Rideshare Program: a research and technology transfer program with the goal of encouraging more commuters to share their vehicles when traveling to and from work. The Plan is the result of an extensive nationwide review of current ridesharing benefits, barriers and activities, and describes an approach to: educating the nation's upper and middle management to the benefits of company-based carpooling and vanpooling, and to promoting the energy and financial benefits of capital investment in rideshare enhancing facilities. The Plan emphasized the means for collecting the information necessary to a successful rideshare marketing campaign, as well as the lines of communication through which the program's research findings will be disseminated.
