The Capital Region Planning Commission has been awarded a grant from the state Department of Transportation and Development for a software program designed to help connect commuters to share rides to and from work.
The Advocate reported (http://bit.ly/1rrmRPa) the GreenRide program uses an Internet-based approach that can be customized to let employees of a single company connect to share a ride to work or be open to the general public to connect neighbors who might be traveling to the same place.
The hope is that by helping people connect, the program will reduce congestion on highways and provide a way to cut ozone pollution as Baton Rouge braces for yet another new, likely lower air quality standard.

Today's birdwatcher can use a radar image accessed through a smartphone to find out the best place to go birding.
The latest technology is part of what draws hundreds of birders to Cape May Convention Hall every October during New Jersey Audubon's Cape May Autumn Birding Festival.
The oldest birding festival in North America began Friday and runs through Sunday with field trips, speakers, book signings, workshops and a number of other events.
La Puma hears some complaints about how technology has changed birding, but he argues such devices, used in a responsible way, are a fantastic resource.
Pete Dunne, a former bird observatory director, birding author and self-described Luddite, doesn't like all the technology.
Bird observatory naturalist Kathy Horn swears by her $70 adapter that allows her to turn what she is viewing in her scope into a picture on her smartphone.
Horn said digiscoping, or taking pictures from the spotting scope, has helped him learn more about birds.
Schools are using online programs to get students to learn about birds, sometimes before they have even seen them in the field.
Dale Rosselet, who has worked at the bird observatory for 16 years, said the technology also means more opportunities to see rare birds.
