What Is Rideshare?
Share the ride in a carpool and vanpool and you officially rideshare! We’ll help you get started and find a carpool or vanpool partner. Use our free Rideshare Planner to connect with others who are traveling the same direction and time.
> Rideshare Overview
Why Share The Ride?
You'll save on gas and parking expenses, plus help reduce congestion and air pollution.
Carpoolers can use freeway express lanes and ramp meter bypasses, qualify for the Guaranteed Ride Home program and may qualify for free or reduced-price parking. Vanpoolers may qualify for Metro Vanpool, a regionally subsidized van lease program that turns long commutes into productive and relaxing rides. Vanpool drivers also receive incentives for participating.
