Liberty Village gets new carpool pilot project

Liberty Village residents' struggle to ease their commuting woes continues, with the crowdfunded Line Six bus line now halted in its tracks. Earlier this month, the organizers pulled the plug on the service due to concerns that the route would be breaking municipal laws regarding transit providership, which is the exclusive domain of the TTC.

This still leaves thousands of commuting condo-dwellers woefully underserved by the over-crowded, often-delayed 504 King streetcar. Now, a new service is offering another potential solution, one that uses what Liberty Villagers have already got -- their own cars, and enough people to fill them.

cLink, a carpooling app which acts as a sort of uberX for ride-sharers, is attempting to build a database of interested carpoolers between between Liberty Village and downtown. Their ultimate goal is to transform every empty car seat on the route -- from personal cars to taxis -- into "a pleasant $4 fixed price ride for a passenger". They're currently seeking signups from commuters interested in offering seats or becoming passengers.
