Reduce stress and save money… Welcome to Rideshare!
Driving to work is stressful and expensive, especially if it’s just you driving alone. Think about how much time and money you could be saving if you had someone else in the car and could just hop into the carpool lane, or if you didn’t have to pay for gas or parking. If you took the bus and had someone else do the driving, you might be able to check email or read your favorite book.
Rideshare is more than just carpooling and vanpooling. It’s a new way of looking at your commute and choosing multi-modal options for getting to work. Metro is here to help you find an easier way to get around LA. Metro offers employer-based transit passes, ridematching for carpoolers and schools, bicycling support, subsidies for vanpoolers, and more.
Learn about all of the programs available to you and your employer and get to work stress-free and with more cash in your pocket! Not only that, but it’s good for the environment, too.
