RideScout Mobile Application

RideScout LLC (RideScout) will further develop, test, and launch the RideScout mobile application, which aggregates information for travelers on all of the ride options, public and private, around a user in real time. Real time information on public transit will be combined with information on taxis and car sharing. The project investigators will complete further development and improvement of the RideScout mobile application, and test its usage and effectiveness in Austin, Texas and Washington, DC metropolitan areas. Prior to the launch in these two cities, investigators will build relationships with transit agencies, city officials, universities, and transportation management associations in the region. Investigators will explore integration of Zipcar and Car2Go data feeds into the application.
