Carma is a new FaceBook & SmartPhone-based system for turning your carbon-reducing good intentions into reality. Now it’s available in the Bay Area and the Transportation Authority of Marin is helping to promote it. (It’s been up and running successfully in Washington, DC, Austin, TX and several European cities for a while.)
Once you’ve signed up and downloaded the phone app, you just log in and enter your travel information – especially the trips you make daily or weekly – and through the magic of the computer, you’re put in touch with potential ride share partners. And here’s the best part: Carma actually pays you for each trip. Save money and reduce your carbon signature. What’s not to like.
You can learn all about it the the Carma Website.
