Request for advice on ride-sharing programs

Posted on September 24th, 2009 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Patricia Berlowe, OLLI at Yavapai College Asks OLLI:
Yavapai College’s Prescott Campus OLLI is looking into the possibility of setting up a ride-sharing program to assist non-mobile OLLI members to attend classes.  Please let us know if you have set up such a system, are considering one, have tried one and closed it down, and if you would be willing to share your learnings.  Also, please advise if you have identified any software that could support a matching process.

  1. In our early years, we generated member lists “by town” for members who wanted to explore ride sharing. It was up to them to connect with one another to determine if their course schedules lent themselves to traveling together. It turned out, few people used the information, there was no longer a demand for it and the process petered out. If someone asked for it - we would probably do that same thing for them and let them take it from there.
