Ridematching starts with discovering who at your company is interested in ridesharing. We help you survey your employees. Survey data includes where they come from, where they work, as well as their start and finish times, and other information that goes into a database. Then we give each employee a RideGuide, a list of potential rideshare partners and/or public transit and rail information that will make it easy for them to start ridesharing. If you are an employer with more than 250 employees, our survey can also help you comply with South Coast Air Quality Management District requirements. During the rest of the year, you can get free ridematching assistance for your employees by calling 1-866-RIDESHARE (866-743-3742) and your employees can update their rideshare profiles online too.
Eligible employees may receive $2 per day in gift cards for the first three consecutive months when they try ridesharing. Once the incentive is over, we enroll ridesharing employees in Rideshare Plus, a program to keep them ridesharing by giving them discounts for goods and services they want. We’ll help kick start your program with free marketing materials and advice.
Did you know one of the main reasons employees are hesitant to rideshare is that they might have to work late or leave work suddenly due to an unexpected emergency? Employers who participate in the IE Commuter program have access to the Guaranteed Ride Home program which offers eligible rideshare participants a free ride home (taxi, transportation network company, rental car, public transit, and carsharing company) up to two times per year in the event of an unexpected emergency or other circumstance. To see if you're eligible, sign up, or to learn more about the program, call 1-866-RIDESHARE (866-743-3742).
When your employees start a new vanpool that originates and terminates within Riverside or San Bernardino counties, we underwrite the cost at $1,800 over 9 months. For companies with vanpools that terminate in Los Angeles, Orange, or San Diego County, the benefit is $400 per month. Call 1-866-RIDESHARE (866-743-3742) to get started.
