Most cars on the freeway are single occupant. Imagine a different paradigm – the intersection of flows of vehicles, with positions and paths => v(p,p) , with flows of people, with schedules and destinations => p(s,d), and using social transportation tools (e.g. Zimride™) that merge these dynamic networks . Imagine ridesharing corridors , the merging of trust networks with a ride sharing / collaboration ethic .
