King County commuters can receive rewards for signing up for a carpool or vanpool by Sept. 19.
RideshareOnline.com helps connects commuters. The interactive ride-matching service helps commuters find existing carpools or vanpools anywhere along their route. Or, users can set up a new route.
The service has recently expanded to include additional features. Commuters can use a new calendar feature to track trips, estimate cash savings and greenhouse gas reductions, and earn rewards.
King County Metro Transit, the Washington State Ridesharing Organization offer a special promotion through Sept. 19. Register to carpool or vanpool at least two days per week before the deadline, and add the trips to the online tracking calendar for at least one week during the promotion period. Participants will be eligible for rewards.
