Corinne Villavasso spoke about Ride Sharing with GeauxRideNOLA.com
This is a ride sharing program regulated by the Planning Commission of the Louisiana Department of Transportation- Metro New Orleans GreenRide. It is regulated by the Federal Government.
Ride sharing reduces the number of cars on the highway and provides a transportation alternative for the 16-20% of households who are without cars. It is also linked to employee benefits, tax incentives, and company cost savings
