Carma is a free consumer smartphone app which allows commuters to match up in real-time, or in advance, to carpool or ride-share. The model is based an organic concept referred to as “casual carpooling” in San Francisco, Houston and Washington DC. Carma Austin is the world’s first use of automated occupancy verification to provide discounted tolls for high occupancy use along toll roads 183A and Manor Expressway Hwy 290. This is a federally funded project administered by the Texas Department of Transportation and the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, and should help remove hundreds of cars daily from these congested freeways. These public-private partnerships can be found in San Francisco, Austin and Washington DC. Carma users get faster commute times and free tolls, and the government improves the efficiency of the transportation network without investing in any new infrastructure.
