The Rideshare system matches people interested in carpooling, vanpooling or bicycling based on home and work (or school) locations and schedules. Interested commuters receive names of others with similar commute routes and work hours, who have expressed interest in carpooling or cycling. It is then up to you to contact them to discuss arrangements for riding or biking together.
Ridesharing reduces the number of vehicles on the road and helps reduce air pollution. Carpoolers and vanpoolers can save money and reduce stress by sharing the time and cost of the commute. Get healthier by working exercise into your daily routine by cycling or walking for work, school and errands.

Some employers (including the State of California) even provide subsidies to employees who drive or ride in vanpools.
