What is rideshare?

Rideshare is the communal use of transportation.

We aim to provide a multi-modal approach to your commute so that you can arrive at your destination efficiently, sustainably, and enjoyably. Everyone shares the ride at one point or another; whether we start a carpool, take the bus, ride bikes with a group, or walk with a friend, we are choosing to share that ride.

There are limitless options when deciding how to get where you are going and often combining several modes is your best option. As we focus our efforts on sharing the ride as opposed to driving alone we can reduce traffic congestion, pollution, and countless hours wasted on freeways. By providing access to transportation as an alternative to ownership we enter the shared economy and begin accomplishing our goals. Through policy, programming, advocacy, and education we can develop our shared mobility resources and change the paradigm for transportation in Los Angeles.

Look through the commuter and employer programs we offer to find services that will make your life easier and your businesses greener.

Your commute is your choice.

Make informed decisions by understanding all of your options. If you would like to cut down on costs, reduce your carbon footprint, get exercise or be more productive, then you should definitely consider ditching your car or inviting a friend to join you.

Save money by changing your transportation choice. Driving alone is the most expensive form of transportation. Gas costs, vehicle maintenance, Express Lane tolls, and outstanding pollution are pulling your pockets and hurting the Earth. Find out how much you are spending before you decide how to fix it.

Carpooling is a cheap and effective travel option. Finding someone who lives near you has never been so easy. Follow the link below to find local SoCal residents looking to share the ride. Users are looking to match whether they want to go to work or the Saturday night concert. Give your wallet a break and leave the parking headache in the past.

Getting to school means millions of extra trips bringing students to and from daily classes. Together we can get your kids to school safely and decongest our roads. There are a lot of alternatives that can make any school into a smooth drop off/pick up system.

Large companies need to comply with certain environmental standards. Sustainable commuting is a core element to the standards that your regulated company will need to meet. Follow the link to see how your employer can save you money and meet its requirements.
