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 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.
