RIDES for Bay Area Commuters has a whole range of new vanpool opportunities. A new vanpool coordinator, new vanpool programs and a new route are just part of the picture!

New Vanpool Consultant
Meet Julie Brennan. Julie is the new RIDES Vanpool Consultant for the Pleasanton area.  As you may know, RIDES provides a number of free vanpool services to employers. RIDES works closely with the Association and the City of Pleasanton to maximize your resources and minimize your effort. In addition to providing background information, RIDES can assist vanpoolers in taking advantage of all of the regional programs that provide formation and operational incentives to vanpools. These vanpool benefits are substantial and can lead to big savings in money, time and sanity!

RIDES has recently unveiled SMARTPOOL. SMARTPOOL's make it even easier to create and use vanpools as a transportation alternative.
