Huron and Perth Discuss Ride Share Program

Huron County council has expressed interest in meeting with Perth County to discuss the potential of a Rideshare program.

United Way of Perth Huron Executive Director Ryan Erb suggests the Rideshare program is one way to address the lack of public transportation in Huron and Perth.
And social media makes it possible for the idea to work.

Erb explains a person would log on to the web site and indicate where they want to go and when.
They would then be connected with other people hoping to make the same trip.
Erb adds the immediacy of social media would provide some flexibility to the service.

He estimates it would cost about 20-thousand dollars a year to operate the program.
