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. 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 origin 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.
Prepare For Your Commute

Looking like a nice day? Maybe a bike ride or a walk to the bus stop is in order!
If there are nearby users interested in traveling as part of a group, you'll see information about your pool matches here.
If you are already a member of a carpool or vanpool, you can manage your membership by clicking the "Manage my Pools" dropdown at the bottom of the widget.
You also get previews and easy access to all your available mode options, including distances and approximate travel times. To see more information about any of these modes, just click and you’ll get more route details and options.
Managing Your Commute
Clicking on one of the cards under 'Manage my Pools' will allow you to invite others to join your shared commute and review confirmed members of your carpool/vanpool.
View contact information for other members of carpools that you’ve joined.
And view details for vanpools that you’re a member of.
