online ride matching

Rideshare, Etc can help your employees find alternatives to driving to work alone through the easy to use www.rideshareetc.org website.  The online rideshare software is an easy to use single source of commuter information which makes it easy for your employers to do their own search. The website can search for carpool partners, vanpools, transit routes, park and ride lots and bike buddies.  The employee then chooses which option works best for her or him and makes their own arrangements.  Metro Transit also provides an online trip planner and the City of Madison has an online bike trip planner. These online services make it easier for your employers to explore their options at their convenience.  However, employees who do not have internet access or are not comfortable using the online site can call 266-RIDE for assistance.
