A Trusted Network of Physical Hubs
Creating physical location Hubs for individuals to meet others traveling along the same route or possibly to the same destination. The goal is to travel with others. No scheduling required -- once two or more want to travel together they can organize and leave at any time.
It's no question there's safety in numbers, but how do you organize a process and system for 1) building 'trust' among others and 2) coordinating group travel?
The location permanence of specific Hubs would create a 'neighborhood community' where individuals would become known and trusted. New, unknown individuals would have to earn 'trust' in the network before others would feel comfortable traveling with them alone.
It's expected the Hubs would become more and more self organized over time due to repetition of use.
The Hubs would also serve as a platform opportunity for communication and education.
