Ready to take the next step? You can experience the ease and flexibility of roadside ridesharing using our resources. 

The major take-away from the Lawrence OnBoard project was this:  About 1 in 16 drivers on the road will stop and pick up random strangers and transport them short distances if they feel it is safe and convenient to do so.  This was not just a strong finding, consistently borne out over hundreds of trips--but from the rider's point of view, it felt something like a miracle.
