What keeps you from carpooling or biking or taking the bus? For many, it's being prepared for an emergency and being able to get to those in need or being prepared to stay late to meet a deadline. And for many it's the cost for the emergency trip.

Simply register with the Trident Rideshare program http://www.bcdcog.com/carpoolvanpool.htm
and set up a carpool at least once a week or check on the bus route that is closest to your home and start riding the bus. Whether you face a family illness or are asked to work unscheduled overtime, the program ensures that you will get reimbursed if you have to go home via taxi or bus.

Funded by the Federal Transit Administration, the tridentrideshare.com is a free and convenient web-based service that connects commuters looking to share cars, bicycles, taxi, van, and bus or walking trips in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester Counties. Sharing a ride is not only fun, but it helps preserve air quality, decreases traffic congestion, conserves fuel, promotes better health and saves you money simultaneously. Complete details for registering for Tridentrideshare and for the Emergency Ride Home can be found at tridentrideshare.com

The Trident Rideshare program and the BCD Council of Governments hopes that this special offer will give "peace of mind" and will result in an increase in users of alternative transportation: riders will be reimbursed for a taxi or bus ride for a qualified emergency or unexpected event (including missing the bus if staying late). Restrictions apply.

The Trident Rideshare Program is funded in part by the Federal Transit Administrative as a way of reducing the impact of single occupancy vehicles on the environment.
