In addition to our three bus shuttles, we have alternative options available for your commute along the Blue Line, including car share, bike share, ride share and van pool.
Car share customers can rent, locate and unlock vehicles from a mobile application, turning any car into a connected car. Transit patrons can park and ride, then make their vehicles available for others to use as a connection to their destination.
During the New Blue Improvements Project, car share will be available at the Willow Station parking lot through Zipcar.com and Getaround.com
Ridesharing refers to any form of traveling other than driving alone; including carpooling, vanpooling, taking transit, bicycling and walking. Metro Rideshare can help you connect with other commuters who share the same travel time/route and who are looking to save money. Sign up now and see how easy it is to get personalized information on carpooling, vanpooling, finding a bike buddy or taking transit. Visit www.ridematch.info to register.
