EDUWheels is a platform for students to coordinate ride sharing opportunities. The mission of EDUWheels is to connect students with safe and accessible transportation and help them share costs and lessen the environmental impact of traveling outside of their local campus area. Many students have a car and travel outside of the Monmouth-Independence area regularly, and some students would like to leave town for the weekend or a day trip, but don’t have access to reliable private or public transportation options. EDUWheels makes it possible for students to adventure out of town or visit family for the weekend, and allows others to lessen the cost of a trip they were already planning to take.
EDUWheels allows drivers to offer rides, and passengers to reserve them. Drivers and passengers may offer or reserve rides based on their needs and preferences so that they can ride comfortably. To increase safety and security of passengers and drivers, all users will be verified with their @wou.edu email. This ensures that anyone using the EDUWheels platform is a student or staff of Western Oregon University. In the future, EDUWheels could be scaled and implemented at campuses throughout the United States.
