Founding Supporters

Many people encouraged the establishment of the Ridesharing Institute.  It is important that we do not forget that their voices added to the clamour for change.

Of particular note is Cindy Burbank, a founding member of the board and a director for two years.  Cindy retired from transportation-related activities in January 2014.  Her contribution to the Ridesharing Institute was huge and her help and wise counsel will be missed.
