Carpooling and Vanpooling
If transit isn’t available in your area, or you simply want more options--consider a carpool or vanpool. Download the RideOn app or visit www.RideOnTogether.org and get customized suggestions for your trips. You decide who—if anyone—you want to contact; there’s no obligation. And since everyone communicates through RideOn, your information is always kept safe and confidential. RideOn is free to use. The people who join a pool decide amongst themselves how to share gas expenses.
With today’s technology, many people are discovering that the best commute is no commute at all! Ask your supervisor if you can take telework for a test-drive during Mobility Week.
Tens of thousands of Floridians are getting back on bikes. Because riding a bike to work is great for mind, body--and wallet!
