Looking for a carpool partner for a one-time trip? Check out your local rideboard to see if anyone is planning a similar trip and post your trip for others to find.

Accessing the Rideboard

If your RideAmigos site has enabled a rideboard you’ll have a link in your navigation menu or a rideboard widget on your dashboard:

Rideboard Dashboard Widget

Click through and you’ll be greeted with a list of one-time rideboard trips posted by other users.

Filtering Results

The initial rideboard view will display all posted trips scheduled to start after the current date and time. You can use the filtering tools to narrow down your results.

Rideboard Interface

Use the “From” and “To” drop-down menus to review all of the origins and destination of other rideboard posts.

Choose an origin or destination to filter display results. By default you will see all trips that start or end within 10 miles of the locations chosen.

Click “Advanced Options” to further filter dates and search radii.

Reviewing Options

After you have filtered your results, select trip cards in the left column to preview them on the map.

Alternately, you can select origin or destination pins on the map to select the corresponding trip from the results column.

Sending Messages

If you find a trip that’s a good match you can initiate a conversation with the trip owner by sending them a message. Just type a note in their trip card, click “Send Message” and they will receive your message via email.

Posting a Ride

If you’re planning a one-time trip you’re interested in sharing and you aren’t able to find someone who has already posted a ride, you can post your own.

Rideboard - Add Trip

Start by clicking the “Post a Ride” button and entering your start, destination, and departure time information. Save your trip, and it will be visible to others searching the Rideboard for one-time trip partners. To edit your trip, go to the My Commute widget on your user dashboard, select the trip you wish to edit, then click the “Edit This Commute” button.
