Transportation Choices Information Center: Access to information about transportation choices is essential to changing commute habits. The Transportation Choices Information Centers are a convenient way to get vanpool schedules, bus schedules and other transportation information. We provide you with all the materials needed for your Transportation Choices Information Center.

Vanpool, Carpool Matches: By working with Ride-On and SLO Rideshare, you can be matched with other commuters who live and work in similar locations. In many instances, you will carpool or vanpool with other individuals at your worksite, or neighboring worksites. Contact Rideshare to see if you can participate in teh bike-sharing program!

Bicycling or Walking to Work: Each person who chooses to ride a bicycle or walk to work will save a parking spot, leaving more parking available for your customers and clients. Having bicycle racks at your worksite sends a message of support to people who will ride their bikes to work. Contact Rideshare to see if you can participate in the bike-sharing program!

If you become sick or need to work overtime on a day you have carpooled, vanpooled or taken the bus, and you are registed in you are provided up to 4 rides per fiscal year.
