RIDESHARING PROGRAMS OF BUSINESS AND INDUSTRY

Many companies--citing reduced parking requirements, less traffic congestion, energy conservation and increased employee job satisfaction--have established employee ridesharing programs. The organizations differ in size, location and function. Some ridesharing programs are complex, other are small and simple. some programs are heavily subsidized and others support themselves. This publication describes 25 successful programs, highlighting innovative and unique program features that have contributed to the success of ridesharing. Included are carpooling, vanpooling, buspooling and public transit. Most of the organizations are large and multilevel bus most of the descriptions are confined to a single division or department at a specific worksite. No attempt has been made to describe a company's total ridesharing program. In addition to benefits, this report describes costs and savings, along with other aspects of the programs. There are three major sections: (1) Detailed descriptions of the 4 main ridesharing modes used by employers; (2) Key programs elements; and (3) Company profiles. Two appendices include a ridesharing matrix which depicts major aspects of each program and a list of resources available to aid companies in setting up and maintaining a ridesharing program.
