In response to our New Year’s annual roundup of the library of striking and informative videos assembled over the last years by the editor and readers of World Streets, one just came in today from New Zealand, thanks to Paul Minett, Chairman of the Ridesharing Institute. To contact him directly, email him at firstname.lastname@example.org.

About the author:
Paul Minett is an Auckland resident and ratepayer. He is an advocate of increased ridesharing through a commercial ridesharing venture, and chairman of the international Ridesharing Institute. A latest collaborative project is their Road Decongestion Lab concept, at http://www.ridesharinginstitute.org/roaddecongestionlab. He writes:
We all make individual trip choices that are rational, but they are collectively irrational when we jam up our roads and waste energy and time, and foul up the atmosphere. This situation is treated as foregone conclusion by most of the people ‘in charge’, but I want to challenge it. The low-cost answer is to use the empty seats in private cars – but how do we get the community to desire this and to do it?
I have spent a decade focused on this question. Before that I was a business strategy consultant with KPMG Consulting. And before that, various finance-related roles, and a couple of years as a volunteer business advisor in Botswana.
