The Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) through its Go Vermont initiative has launched a new, state-of-the-art ridesharing program. The new program offers those seeking to carpool an Internet tool to search for others who rideshare. The new, web-based program replaces the Vermont Rideshare Program.
The new tool is reported to offer quick and easy service for people looking to ride share not only within Vermont, but anywhere within the entire tri-state area of Vermont, Maine and New Hampshire.
Go Vermont is VTrans’ web-based clearinghouse for all kinds of alternative transportation options, including carpools, vanpools, public transit, and rail services, as well as park-&-ride locations.
Go Vermont can be accessed at www.connectingcommuters.org.
Registering with Go Vermont automatically qualifies carpoolers for a “guaranteed ride home” in case of emergency. This benefit provides those who use the website with an “insurance policy” incase either they or their driver has an unexpected schedule change. Registrants also can obtain parking passes for designated spaces at participating employers, as well as qualify them for any incentive and drawings offered directly through the Go Vermont program.
