This paper describes an approach to conserving transportation energy known as Telecoordinated Ride Sharing (TCRS), using two new telecommunications technologies which are linked to each other: Personal Communications Services (PCS) and an Intelligent Network (IN). TCRS involves the use of a telephone to arrange ridesharing in private automobiles, vans, and light trucks, while PCS and IN involve the use of touch-tone input and a matching computer.
