Activity toward increasing commuter ridesharing has been steadily increasing throughout this country over the past several years. As the number of programs involved in stressing ridesharing across the country increases, the need for coordination and information also increases. In response to this demonstrated need, the 1975 National Conference on Areawide Carpooling was envisaged. Sponsored Jointly by the Houston CarShare Program, the Federal Highway Administration and the Federal Energy Administration, the conference had one paramount objective: to exchange experiences and to heighten the knowledge and effectiveness of areawide ridesharing programs. The 3-day conference was organized around workshop sessions covering a gamut of topics from Marketing and Promotion to Legal and Regulatory Issues. The attendees, numbering over 130, were representative of all regions of the United States, from a wide range of private and public agencies, institutions and organizations actively involved in promoting increased ridesharing. The proceedings presented in this document will help to fill the great need for information and concern for transportation alternatives.
