This is the demo of the Ride Now dynamic ridesharing system.
Ride Now is a computer- and telephone-based system that allows commuters to make one-time ride matches close to their departure time.
The Ride Now system was pilot tested three times — in three
different settings – in 2004 to 2006.
Here is a report on my experiences in developing and attempting to
implement the Ride Now system:

How Ride Now works
The Ride Now system looks for other BART riders from your neighborhood and matches you up. If you take a ride, we guarantee you a ride home – by taxi, if we can't find you a driver.
