But why share the ride? Alleviating traffic means commutes get shorter and less stressful. In addition to that, people who share their ride can:
- Save money on gas
- Save money on parking
- Spend less on maintaining their personal vehicle
- Use HOV lanes, and get to their destination even faster
- Reduce stress by taking turns being the driver and the rider
Most people start their Ridesharing experience with commuting to work. Worried about the kids getting sick? What if a supervisor asks you to work late and your carpool leaves without you? There's Guaranteed Ride Home!
Guaranteed Ride Home
Guaranteed Ride Home
is free for anyone who shares their ride at least twice each week and cannot use that mode of transportation to get home. As long as a commuter carpools, vanpools, uses transit, or bikes or walks to work, they are eligible.
2018 Bike to Work Day
Bike to Work Day
on May 18, 2018 is a fun event for our citizens to start bicycling as a means of commuting instead of driving. All levels are welcome including experts, and those who have never biked to work before. The event is comprised of "pit stops" that are located throughout the county. Pit stops are small gatherings where bikers collect their free participatory t-shirt, and can usually pick up breakfast. They may be held at bike shops, coffee shops, trails, and business parks. Please check the Baltimore Metropolitan Council of Government's website
in March 2018 to sign up to join a pit stop near you.
