Metro and SDOT planning “Rideshare Meetups!” to promote Neighborhood Carpooling

To help more Seattle residents get connected with carpooling and vanpooling options, King County Metro and the Seattle Department of Transportation (SDOT) are hosting more than a dozen Rideshare Meetups! in six Seattle neighborhoods this spring and summer, including events in your neighborhood.


SDOT and Metro Rideshare

At Rideshare Meetups! Commuters will be able to learn more about how carpooling and vanpooling can help save time, money, and stress on their commute, meet other commuters in their neighborhood, and sign up for ridesharing programs.  SDOT and Metro staff are available to answer questions and help residents sign up. People who start a new vanpool or join an existing vanpool will also receive a $50 gift card.

King County Metro has the largest vanpool program in the nation and continues to expand each year. Our website has more information about upcoming events and vanpooling and carpooling programs.
