RideAmigos leverages its TDM (Transportation Demand Management) platform called UNITY, to unite entities that create the data needed to provide rich visualizations and insights into commuter habits globally. Providing regional commuter networks, any-mode trip planners, certified transportation commute surveys, trip trackers, reward systems, and GIS reporting tools, UNITY enables unlimited public and private "networks" for companies, universities, groups, etc within a region to create behavior change at a local level while affecting the whole. The primary intention of UNITY is to eliminate traffic for regions, and stabilize climate change via reducing the impact of emissions through traffic sources.

The combustion of fossil fuels such as gasoline and diesel to transport people and goods is the second largest source of carbon dioxide emissions, accounting for about 32% of total U.S. carbon dioxide emissions and 27% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions in 2012. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, carbon dioxide is the primary greenhouse gas that is contributing to recent climate change. RideAmigos believes it's platform is the future of climate change resilience.

Using our platform, users can sync data to Esri ArcGIS for modal analysis while exploring how each mode contributes to greenhouse emissions and climate change. RideAmigos uses Esri's API's to facilitate its mission, such as the ArcGIS Network Analyst for routing, and the ArcGIS Online Geocoding Service for acquiring location coordinates and auto-type/search conveniences. During the challenge period, RideAmigos employed significant development resources to optimize its platform for the Hackathon's focus to address climate change resilience.
