RUFUS, A COMPUTERIZED RIDESHARE MATCHING SYSTEM

A newly developed computerized ride-share matching system is described. The system is an effective tool in the effort to encourage commuters to join carpools and vanpools. The formation of carpools and vanpools is a relatively inexpensive and convenient way to reduce air pollution and traffic congestion. It attracts individuals who would not consider using public transit into an alternative high occupancy vehicle (HOV) commuter mode.
