Employees often say they would share a ride if they knew of a fellow employee that lived in their same area.
One of the ways CommuteSmart encourages ridesharing is by helping employees find potential carpool and vanpool partners by utilizing our internal ridematching database.
CommuteSmart offers ridematch lists to help commuters find co-workers, friends and neighbors to share their commutes. Commuters can register and create their own match list; or contact the CommuteSmart staff to receive a match list via email or mail.
The ridematching database currently has 12,000+ commuters in the Jefferson and Shelby county areas. Everyday the database is growing and changing, so commuters can continually check back for new potential matches, if needed.
Commuters that have found a ridematch on their own are eligible to receive CommuteSmart program incentives. Employees riding with a family member, neighbor, roommate or even someone working at another company are eligible as well.
