This October 1-31, Rideshare Month encourages people to replace drive-alone trips with rideshare trips.
What is ridesharing? It can be carpooling, vanpooling, taking the bus, light rail, or train.
Find additional ways to win prizes by following Pierce Trips on Facebook and Twitter!
You can rideshare to work with your coworkers, to a sporting event (Seahawks games, anyone?), a gathering with friends and family, and so much more. Here are some resources to get you started:
Carpool – Share the ride to a restaurant, show, or other outing. For help finding a carpool, complete a ridematch application at RideshareOnline.com.
Vanpool– Commute to work once a week, or every day with your coworkers. You only need 3 people to start a vanpool, and in a Pierce Transit (Pierce County) or Intercity Transit (Thurston County) vanpool, your first month is free.
Bus – Leave your parking woes behind and hop on the bus. Can't take the bus all the way? Complete your trip by biking or driving part way.
Light Rail– Walk, bike or drive part way and catch theT Line through Tacoma or Line 1 from Angle Lake to Northgate in Seattle.
Sounder Train–The Sounder Train travels between Lakewood and Everett during commute hours. Giddy up on that train to work, the next Seahawks game, show or other outing.
