A group for the Metro Washington, DC area to discuss and exchange ideas on the use of technology and its impact on our local environment. All is invited to join and participate.
Cityleft has worked together with Travelsharing.netsons.org to develop an open source website for car pooling.
Carpooling (also known as car-sharing, ride-sharing, lift-sharing and covoiturage), is the shared use of a car by the driver and one or more passengers, usually for commuting (Wikipedia).
However Travelsharing.netsons.org extended this approach to other forms of mobility such as biking, hiking, and so on.
The website is still at its beta version. Users should join to the community in order to translate contents in local languages.
