Share A Ride

Share A Ride is a computerized service that matches car and vanpool partners for the
daily commute to work or school. You'll be matched with other people who share common neighborhoods, work locations, and work hours. Share A Ride services are FREE to commuters in Lucas, Wood, Seneca, Erie, Ottawa, Huron, and Sandusky counties.

Signing up for Share A Ride has never been easier.
You can register on-line or by phone at 419.241.1919 ext. 116 or
1.800.241.1919 if you live outside the Toledo area.

We provide you with FREE assistance concerning:

Carpooling — A group of 2 to 4 people who live and work in the same area with similar work hours, who share the use of their personal cars and/or expenses for driving to and from work or school.

Vanpooling — Groups of 7-15 people who agree to share expenses for the use of a van to drive to and from work everyday.

Guaranteed Ride Home program — A safety net for those commuters registered with Share A Ride to ensure that no one who shared a ride to work is left without transportation home in the event of an emergency or unexpected overtime.

Park and Ride Lots — Area locations where you can park your car and catch the bus or meet your carpool partners.

Commuter Choice — Tax information you and your employer should know about that could be saving you money every year.

Carpooling helps reduce:

  • Gas and oil expenses
  • Maintenance and repair costs
  • Wear and tear on your vehicle

Pooling on a regular basis can save you $1,000 or more each year!

Besides the benefits of saving money through car or vanpools, individuals help the environment. Ohio Environmental Protection Agency states that vehicle emissions account for 45% of ground-level ozone. Ground-level ozone forms when pollutants react with sunlight and heat. When we prevent pollution by making slight changes in our driving, refueling, and household maintenance activities, we significantly reduce ozone-forming pollution.
