Commuter Services

Looking for a better commute? TheRide offers ride sharing incentive programs and specific commuter services for people regularly traveling to the Ann Arbor - Ypsilanti area.

  • Carpool

    Carpooling is a great option if you can find a group of people with a similar daily commute. We have tips to help you create a carpool or find an existing carpool to join.

  • Vanpool

    While similar to carpooling, vanpooling allows you to travel with a larger group and split commuter costs further. Learn how forming a vanpool can help you save money and create a more enjoyable daily commute.

  • Park & Ride

    Park your car at a commuter lot for free and hop on our fixed-route buses. We can help you find a Park & Ride lot that's conveniently located near you.

  • Emergency Ride Home

    When the unexpected happens, it's important that you can quickly get home, to daycare, to the hospital, or wherever it is you need to be. Learn how TheRide has you covered with the Emergency Ride Home program.
