The application is currently geared for those who want to ride share or carpool dynamically within their own small groups, friends or family since the number of people on the network is still limited.
The price of gasoline is changing behavior where carticipating is becoming a necessity for an increasing number of people. Ride sharing and car pooling has been, up to this point, opportunistic since it isn't practical to call or email several people every time one wants to share a ride, especially on short notice. Location-based smart phones and social networks are colliding with a rise in fuel prices driving the carticipation model where social transportation will compliment and augment public transportation.
