ECORIDE is a new system of collective transportation through an app, that allows people to organize collective rides, it can be use in two ways.

1.(Schools and Jobs) First we want to decrease a 70% of the traffic, making the people create a collective ride for school or work, it is very usual that people in your school or office lives close to you, so through the app you can find people who lives close to you and are going to the same place as you or close, so you can sing up as a “user” or “driver”.

This is the cheapest and efficient solution of the pollution and traffic problem in the city and worldwide.

Ecoryde is the most efficient option (financial and ecological) to guide the world towards a better future by working collectively and creating ecological conscience on the people, we can create a better today and future .

Describe who will use your solution (1,000 characters)

The solution will be used by the citizens of miami trough "drivers" and "users" Students and coworkers are the principal collaborative members of the project, because they represent 75% of miami traffic and they have similar routes.

Describe your solution's stage of development

  • Initial Design - you are still exploring the idea and have not tested it with users

Tell us about your team or organization (500 characters)

I´m just starting the idea, i need capital to start.

Size of your team or organization

  • 2-10

Funding Request

  • $100,000

Describe how you would pilot your idea (1000 characters)

First i´ll create a team to develop the app funtions. Working hard it can take three months to have it ready. That´s why this option it´s great, has a enourmus transformation to the city and it´s a cheap option. Instead of investing on highways and bridges that destroy the envirometn and only decrease the problem temporatly. Invest less money on young people that wants to change the world and improve it for our futures generations and the different species that are extincting.

Describe how you would measure the success of your pilot (1000 characters)

We will see the success when we see collective rides, people using one vehiclue instead using each person one. Like it´s hapenning today. So people having benefits like this app is offering, it´s going to promote collaboration. When the people starts seeing the city it´s investing more on recreational infraestructure (parks or green areas) they will be happy citizens and probably less delicuence. When the people going to work or to the school starts creating better relationships with the people they share ride with, because they are socializing and living more among them. We can see how it reduces the violence problems between students or coworkers in schools or jobs. So this project has more benefits than just reduce the traffic, because the problem are not the cars, the problems is our society and how less we care about others and the enviroment we live in
