Can I carpool to...
SpaceShare works with events that want to encourage people to carpool
(or share or network in some other way).
There are dozens of tools to carpool from anywhere to anywhere, often spreading out drivers and riders onto different sites.
We only build tools where we hope to have a critical mass, where enough
users will be going to the same place at the same time to make carpooling
- If you are traveling to an event, ask them how to carpool there, and encourage them contact us to build a system for them.
- If it is too late to set up carpooling to the event you are going to, or you are looking for a commute or city-to-city carpool, here is a guide to other transit tools.
- Check in again in two years. We're going step-by-step to build tools that make sense and really work; but we have an amazing vision of how community can replace cars.
Where are you based?
Our green logistics tools can be used anywhere.
Physically, our headquarters are in Oakland, California. You are much
more likely to see us running an exhibit here than anywhere else. But
we have volunteers
all over the world, including contacts in Mexico and Thailand, who are
ready to assist events in their regions be a bit greener.
Are you part of any conspiracies, or have secret plans and goals?
Yes, "relocalization." One of our objectives is to convince people to stay in their communities. In big regions like the San Francisco Bay Area, there is far more than enough going on to keep people entertained, most weekends, closer to home. Expending resources to travel 30 or 300 miles for a weekend's fun is wasteful unless it is something you particularly want to go to. Often, people spend much of their weekend in the car, rather than at an activity.
Relocalization. Once people get in the habit of traveling with their neighbors, they'll start making friends with their neighbors, and we hope one day will have an epiphany that they can enjoy most of their weekends with their neighbors, closer to home, in community, perhaps supporting more local arts, more often than not.
