  • Avego Ride Board automatically imports participating drivers’ daily commuting routes and preferred departure times. This allows riders to easily visualize all available rides in close proximity, and to request rides to their preferred destination at a convenient departure time. In the same way that bus schedules provide passengers with predictability and confidence in the transit system, Avego Ride Board will increase user confidence in their ability to catch a ride when they need one. This is key to maximizing the participant base and to expanding the network.
  • The pilot will help reduce traffic congestion in Bergen's busy Kokstad/Sandsli business district. Nine local employers with over 7,000 staff have agreed to participate in the program, including the international energy company Statoil. The program is funded initially by a 1 million Kroner grant ($181,000) from the Norwegian Transport Authority. An additional 1.5 million Kroner ($271,000) would also be available with the expansion of the program beyond the first phase. Why does a city or government consider funding RTR pilots? After all, riders and drivers both benefit financially, so the ongoing costs of the program should be very limited. The project will focus on a key corridor between a busy business park near Bergen airport and downtown Bergen. A 15km commute on the corridor takes an average of 45-60 minutes. Trips taken using the available HOV lanes take an average of only 20 minutes. It’s hoped a switch to real-time ridesharing will help get more cars in the HOV lanes, leading to less congestion, and less pollution, too. The potential environmental savings from real-time ridesharing are especially appealing for Bergen, which is one of the most polluted cities in Europe.
