RideAmigos provides a comprehensive suite of tools to help you plan and prepare for trips, particularly commute trips (trips you take on a regular schedule) and one-time trips.
Saving your commute as a favorite trip unlocks all kinds of trip planning and carpool sharing tools, so be sure to set up your trip as soon as you start using the system!
To get started, follow the prompts from your user dashboard, or save a trip that you've searched for using the trip planner.
Your saved trip will also let you indicate whether you want to share your information with other users that are matched with you as a potential carpool or bikepool partner.
Locations – Enter the locations that correspond to your origin and destination. You can use either your exact home and work locations or other nearby locations or landmarks if you would prefer to keep your addresses completely private. Even if you use your exact addresses RideAmigos will never share the exact address with other users.
Commute vs. One Time Trip – If this is a trip you take on a regular schedule, choose Commute. If you’re planning a trip that will happen only on a specific day, choose One Time Trip.
Schedule / Flexible Hours – Enter the times you expect to take this trip and indicate if you have some flexibility in the times you've entered and are open to carpooling with others who have slightly different schedules.
Commute Interest – Indicate if you are interested in being matched with other users that are looking for group commute partners. You can include a message that will appear to potential matches.
Driver or Passenger – You can choose whether you are only interested in being a driver or a passenger, or if you’re open to either.
Share This Trip – Your group commute can be shared with anyone on your site who is planning a similar commute trip, with other members of networks to which you belong (such as your employer network,) or with no one. To select networks to share your trip with, choose Specific Networks, then click or type in the network selection box.
