The Miami Valley Regional Planning Commission sponsors the local RIDESHARE Program which is available for FREE to anyone who lives, works or attends college in Montgomery, Greene, Miami, Preble, Darke and Clinton Counties. When you register for RIDESHARE, the matching software will try to link you with others who live near you and work/attend college near you too. You'll receive a match list of people who have similar schedules and destinations. You can call them and make arrangements to form a carpool or vanpool. You can sign up for Miami Valley RIDESHARE or update your record online.
The matching software offers three (3) commuting options: Carpooling, Vanpooling and Biking together (Pedal Pals)
If you have a long commute (over 25 miles one-way), you and a group of up to 14 people may be interested in leasing a van on a monthly basis. There's a place on the RIDESHARE application to indicate your interest in vanpooling.
The monthly vehicle lease rate is based on the size of the vehicle, number of people riding in the van and the average monthly mileage. The monthly lease rate is divided among the passengers and each pays the same amount each month.
If you are interested in biking to work with others, there's a place on the RIDESHARE application where you can indicate that also.
To join any of those programs, just fill out the RIDESHARE application online. Or, call 223-SAVE or 1-800-743-SAVE to talk to a RIDESHARE representative.
If you register for RIDESHARE, you are automatically eligible for the free Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) Program. This program provides ridesharers with a guaranteed ride in case of an emergency. GRH reimburses registered participants 80% of the cost of a taxicab ride (up to four times in a 12-month period). You can use GRH if:
