Gordon Roundabout

Community-driven ride-sharing app for Gordon College students.

THE PROBLEM

More than 50% of Gordon College students do not have cars and cannot access outside resources without paying for services like Uber, Lyft, or Zipcar, or relying on friends with cars.

THE SOLUTION

Leveraging Gordon’s safe, friendly community, our team has developed a community carpooling smartphone app that can connect the population of students with cars to those who lack transportation.

HOW IT WORKS

Using the app, student drivers post trips that they are planning on taking. Other students can reserve seats in these rides, and join in on the excursion. To encourage giving rides, we give drivers incentives.

USE OF FUNDS

Investment of funds will be used to maintain and improve our app, initial advertising, hiring a student programmer and manager, and incentives for drivers. After demonstrating success, our goal is to be acquired by Gordon College as a cheaper alternative to the former shuttle system.
