Several matching techniques for ride sharing are available to serve a wide range of operating conditions. There is a need for guidelines to aid ride-sharing agencies in Virginia in selecting the most appropriate matching technique. The objective of this research was to develop such guidelines, information on the state of the art of ride-share matching techniques was obtained through a literature review and telephone requests of ride-sharing agencies and selected state departments of transportation. Interviews were conducted with personnel of the eleven ride-sharing agencies operating in Virginia to obtain information for an analysis of their ride-share matching techniques. Factors that identify the threshold point at which a computerized matching technique should be considered in lieu of a manual technique were defined. Guidelines that provide a procedure for selecting a matching technique by comparing the ride-sharing agency's matching needs with the capabilities of a selected group of matching techniques were developed.
