It’s nice to share!

And when you share the ride, everyone benefits;
your community, your car, and your wallet!

RideShare is a program of the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission in cooperation with the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission, working to reduce traffic congestion and increase mobility throughout Central Virginia and the Central Shenandoah Valley.

We offer free carpool and SchoolPool matching, vanpool coordination, and operate a Guaranteed Ride Home program to provide free rides home in an emergency.

RideShare also works with employers to develop and implement traffic reduction programs, and we market the region’s Park and Ride lots.

RideShare Week is October 17-23

October 17-23 is RideShare Week, and we want to thank you for sharing the ride!

Commuters that share the ride via carpool, vanpool, transit, biking, walking or even telework can win Duck Donuts gift certificate, gas cards, Visa gift card, or UVA football tickets!
