Description

GreenCarBuddy (GCB) is a new revolutionary way to share rides and parking spots through 'balanced contributions'.

A huge amount of time is wasted through cruising for parking in congested areas. Naturally, this activity also contributes a great deal to emissions of CO2 and thus harms the environment. What makes this application different is that you can RESERVE a parking spot or RIDE (or combination of the two) any time in the future. By making an appointment with another user to utilize his or her parking spot at a specific time, you can eliminate much cruising activity and also save time and money.

With GCB, there is a commitment to share made by both parties who have sufficient information to identify one another when meeting for the appointment without compromising their security or privacy.

Participants get credits for providing parking spots to other participants, which they can then use when they are seeking parking. GCB supports parking sharing, ride sharing and parking and ride combination sharing.

Non-drivers can also participate in the ride sharing component by sharing rides and absorbing part of the ride costs.

The most effective use of GCB is when you combine ride sharing with parking sharing. In this way, you not only provide another user with a parking space for the day, but you are able to return to your original parking space at the end of the day.

GreenCarBuddy is easy and intuitive to use share parking or rides in just 3 easy steps:

1) Search

Look for parking spots or rides using targeted criteria with defaults that

minimize the number of key-presses required.

2)Match

View candidate matching parking/ride offers or parker/rider details and select the best match from a summary candidate list.

3) Make Appointment

Make a reservation for the parking spot or ride or send an offer to a selected rider parker. All parties are notified via an anymous communication channel which can be email, iPhone Push or SMS based. The channel remains open for communications until the appointment time. Drivers are rewarded with credits to be used for parking or cash contributions for ride costs.

You can publish your searches and automate searches on specific days of the week. Other GCB users can contact you anonymously when your published search matches their offering.

Wow! This is amazing. For the first
time you can actually RESERVE a parking spot and not pay for it. I can't wait until people in my community start using it so that I can share parking and rides with them. Great idea GCB and excellent app.

This is really going to make a difference to my commuting. I will be able to plan a trip into NYC without having to set aside the 20 minutes for my search for a parking spot.
