Setting up a carpool is easy. Coworkers, friends, or neighbors are all ideal candidates. We’ll help you get started. Just call 1-866-RIDESHARE and we will register you in a confidential database and match you with other drivers with the same route and work schedule as you. Plus we’ll tell you if you qualify for an incentive to try ridesharing.
If you and four co-workers want to share your ride to an Inland Empire worksite, consider vanpooling. Vanpools are a great alternative for long distance commutes and you can save money and time, and travel in a comfortable and relaxing ride. In addition, vanpools that lease a vehicle through an approved leasing vendor may be eligible for an ongoing monthly subsidy to offset the cost of the vanpool lease - visit this link to learn more.

We can also help you find a seat in an active vanpool—there are currently more than 2,000 on the road in Southern California and many are seeking new riders. Visit the seat finder tool at VanClub.net to discover available seats on active vanpools. If a vanpool is full, you can sign up on a list for when a seat frees up or you can start a trial vanpool to find riders. Don’t see one in your area? It’s easier than you might think to start a new vanpool and a good start is to contact one of the leasing vendors above, as they can be a great ally in helping you start a new vanpool.
