How our RideFinder works

Our RideFinder is a way to test the system to see if you find any matches prior to setting up an account. Once you have an account, it's a convenient way to see multiple options at once. Just look for "Find a Ride" at the top of this page.

Step by step...

  1. Look for options. Tell us your origin and destination. You can refine your search later with an exact date and time, and how flexible you are about your schedule.
  2. Search. Find carpools, vanpools and public transit. For carpools, you may see others regular commutes and one-time trips, or just their one-time trips, depending the web site configuration.
  3. Contact. If you're logged in, you'll see the contact info for your matches. If not, you will still see how many carpool candiates and transit options you might have. (Contact info for vanpool routes may be seen even before you register, depending on the web site configuration.)
  4. Register a Trip. If you are logged in, you may register your trip. This way, others who search later can match to you. You may also enable new match alerts for any registered trip, so that you will receive a notice when a new match is available.
