DART First State is announcing the official launch of its new interactive ridematching and commute tracking software at RideShare Delaware. This new platform allows direct access to finding ridematch partners, logging and tracking your clean commute, updating your profile in real time, transit information, and much more. Dedicated to aiding commuters with finding and using alternative modes of transportation, including bicycling and walking, RideShare Delaware has been serving Delaware employees with their commute needs since 1997. They are funded with a combination of Federal Congestion Mitigation & Air Quality (CMAQ) and State dollars, and the goal of the program is to reduce the number of single occupant vehicles (SOVs) traveling on Delaware’s roadways, thus improving our air quality. RideShare works in partnership with local and regional agencies towards meeting Federal Air Quality Standards.
DART’s RideShare Delaware offers:
- Free ridematching services for commuters, who work or live in Delaware as well as for parents of Delaware school students. This includes matching bicycle commuters who may desire the added safety in numbers.
- A Guaranteed Ride Home (GRH) benefit which is provided for registered commuters actively ridesharing to work.
- Vanpool services and information
- Transportation benefit assistance to employers in Delaware
DART’s RideShare Delaware is administered by URS Corporation located in Newark, Delaware. RideShare’s programs and services cover employers throughout the state and employees living or working in Delaware.
