The My Commute widget on the RideAmigos user dashboard is your one-stop location for planning and preparing for your commute. Here’s a quick overview of all its features.
Getting Started – Save a Commute
If you’re new to RideAmigos, the first thing to do is save your typical commute in the system. If you haven’t saved a favorite trip yet, use the “Let’s Go” button on the My Commute widget to start the process. Choose your and destination locations, schedule, and sharing options, then save your trip.
Choose Your Trip and Time
Up top you’ll find a drop-down menu with your saved commutes. Select the trip you’re preparing for and the widget will update with the latest information.
You can easily swap your origin and destination by clicking the arrow icon between the addresses.
Be sure to add the date and time you plan to leave or arrive to get the most accurate information.
