Our ridematching service focuses on matching drivers and riders. Using our growing database of thousands of commuters and travelers, we can help match your employees with people who have similar home and work destinations and travel preferences.
511NY Rideshare matches employees for potential carpools, vanpools, transit options as well as bike and walk buddies.
Sharing a ride will help your employees enjoy these benefits:
511NY Rideshare works with each employer to survey employees for information about their commute. Complete survey support is available, including email-based surveys. Working with you as the employer, 511NY Rideshare identifies the most appropriate methods for matching your employees for potential carpools, vanpools, transit options as well as bike and walk buddies.
A carpool is the easiest ridesharing arrangement, with two or more people sharing a ride in one vehicle. 511NY Rideshare helps employers by educating employees on carpools, identifying potential carpool groups, offering route planning and other assistance to carpool groups and finding new and replacement riders when necessary.
In a vanpool, people share a ride in a 7- or 15-person van. 511NY Rideshare assists employers in forming vanpools, facilitating van delivery and providing driver and rider orientation. Special incentives may be available in your area to help form and maintain vanpools. For more information, visit Help Forming Vanpools.
Public transportation—including trains, light rail, buses and ferries—is a great commuting option, but transit stations may not be near your work site. 511NY Rideshare can help employers organize a shuttle service to nearby transit stations so employees can use public transportation in a timely manner. Shuttle vans are leased from a third-party vendor and monthly rates are based on mileage. 511NY Rideshare also works with public transit providers to modify existing service whenever possible to benefit participating employers.
