Rideshare Programs

Post Date:10/24/2019 5:25 PM

Enjoy HOV lanes and pass the traffic on by! Ridesharing is a growing trend in both the United States and the Bay Area. With over 500 active vanpools in the Bay, chances are one is headed where you are! There’s a lot to like about getting out from behind the wheel. When you vanpool you can:

  • Save time using HOV lanes and toll booths

  • Save money sharing gas and parking costs

  • Reduce wear and tear on your personal vehicle

  • Work, read, or nap while traveling to and from work


511 Ridematch Program

Metropolitan Transportation Commission offers "511 Ridematch" to connect with other people and get started with a carpool.
