Welcome to Rideshare

Bike to Work Week - May 14-18

Bike to work week is coming May 14-18. Below you can find collateral to encourage your employees to leave their cars at home and hop on a bike. Be on the lookout for emails with helpful tips and the many benefits of biking to work to share with your employees. We’d also like to hear from commuters and their ideas to improve bike paths in Ventura County. Feedback can be provided here

Organizing a carpool is easy with your Commuter Services RideGuide.  Simply contact one or more of the commuters identified in your RideGuide to begin sharing the ride, saving money, and preserving the environment.

Learn more about carpooling by visiting the Carpooling Basics page.


A vanpool is a great option for Ventura County residents with longer commutes.  Your RideGuide will list existing vanpools in your area.  Plus, your employer may be able to help organize a vanpool with fellow employees.

Cycling to work allows you to fit regular exercise into your everyday work routine.  It’s an ideal option for commuters who live within five miles of their workplace.  Commuters with a longer trip can still enjoy bicycling as part of their commute - try combining bicycling with bus or train travel. Bicycle commuters can now enjoy attractive tax benefits as well.

If you live close enough to work to walk, why bother with a car?  Walking offers great exercise and is the ultimate pollution-free commute.


While many VISTA routes are tailored to the needs of commuters, local transit providers (Camarillo Area Transit, Gold Coast Transit, Moorpark City Transit, Ojai Trolley, Simi Valley Transit, and Thousand Oaks Transit) offer reliable service within their individual communities as well. A Go Ventura Bus Pass allows you to ride transit throughout Ventura County with a single pass.


Metrolink’s Ventura County Line links Ventura County with the greater Los Angeles area via stations at East Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo, Moorpark, Simi Valley, Chatsworth, Northridge, Van Nuys, Burbank (Bob Hope Airport), Burbank (Downtown), Glendale, and Los Angeles Union Station.
