dc.description.abstractProfessor Dickerson described a visionary idea that could change the way we think about public transportation in the future. In his concept one would use cell phones to request a carpool, to track their location and even as a key to enter the shared vehicles. These vehicles may be driven by the users themselves and would be parked in designated lots scattered around the urban areas. After requesting a carpool, one would simply drive to the closest designated lot to take the appropriate carpool and drive to one’s destination along with other users of the system. The cell phone is a key ingredient to this scheme. It tells you exactly when and where to meet your ride, it assigns to you a rental car near your office or home when needed and allows you to access the auto and pay your fares, MARTA, car rentals and van and car pools, automatically.
