Carpool database

Decentralized Carpool Database
  [vote for,

Find other people commuting from / to the same locations as you, so you can share a vehicle with them.

Enter your info into a trusted central database, which locates the people who live and work close to your home and workplace, and who commute around the same time. Since most vehicles have only one occupant, this would reduce the number of vehicles on the road, share the costs, and help the environment.

I have not yet figured out how to prevent this from becoming an advertisement to burglars.

       Since this is baked, perhaps as an analog to this you could invent a decentralized database that HELPS burgulars.
