Hi all! If you found this posting and are looking for a Ski Bus, check out the article on DCSKI here about the new Ski Bus service as of 2016. (Full disclosure, I work for the company that's running it.)
I lieu of a bus, it looks like there might be a need for some kind of permanent forum or website listing people providing rides and looking for rides. A lot of localities have online programs or phone dial-in services for commuters, so it can be as simple or as complicated as someone wants and free or for the cost of providng the service. Of course people doing the listing should keep their listing up to date, like when they get a ride or have a full car. I think Craigslist has such a category, but Craigslist sometimes draws unsavory people. If enough people want a ride to a certain place then a van or bus could be rented and the costs shared.
This could even be extended to people looking for roommates for the overnight.
I'd be glad to share rides from Williamsburg as long as someone doesn't mind country music or NFL in season;-}
I did a reply to this topic several days ago and it showed my name as having replied, but no text. It also showed the last comment was 8 years ago and the number of replies and comentators showed a lot less than was actually posted.
Anyway, I think an ideal setup would be to create a forum or find an app that can be used to link drivers and passengers. It would also be nice to include people needing roommates or house sharing. Craigslist has something, but in recent years it seems to have attracted some savory characters. Recently someone was killed by a roommate that had a listing on Craigslist.
