Trains, subways, buses and ferries are effective and efficient ways to commute. Public transportation helps improve mobility and reduce traffic congestion on streets and highways by transporting many people at one time. It is also a cost-effective commuting option because it helps you avoid tolls, parking fees, gas expenses and vehicle wear and tear. Plus, you can catch up on work, read a book, watch a movie on a handheld device or rest while someone else drives.

511NY Rideshare provides expert assistance to create customized door-to-door itineraries, complete with transfer times, transit maps and schedules. Whether you are looking for an alternate route to work, starting work at a new location or trying public transit for the first time, we can help! For personalized assistance, call 511 and say “Rideshare.” Out-of-state travelers can call 888-GO511NY (888-465-1169), select a region (Hudson Valley/Catskills, Long Island, New York City Metro) and then say “Rideshare.”
