Carpool to work with Ride at Stanford

Ride from Ride.

Follow these three steps to a better commute:

  • Sign up at Join as a driver or rider – either way you’ll save money.
  • Ride will match you with co-workers who have a similar route and schedule. Let Ride facilitate the communications and logistics to get you started.
  • Ride and save up to 100% (drivers) or 40% (riders) of your current commute costs.

Benefits of Ride:

  • Payments are managed through the Ride app, so there’s no awkward conversations about the exchange of money.
  • Guaranteed Ride ensures you have access to a vehicle for errands or to get home in case of an emergency or unexpected overtime. This provides broader coverage than Stanford’s Emergency Ride Home program.
