Ride Sharing Programs

Code: BT-4500.4500-700

Programs that make arrangements for people to travel together in private automobiles and vans during busy commuting hours or which provide a central telephone number for people to use to identify others who are commuting to and from the same general area with whom they might share. Vehicle options include vanpools, carpools and shared ride taxi services. Vanpools may be publicly operated, employer operated or individually owned or leased; and the driver is generally not a paid employee but a rider in the vanpool. Shared ride taxi-services enable riders with similar points or origin and destination to group together to share the cost of a taxi ride.
