LAVC Rideshare Program


Carpool. Alternative fuel. Public transport. Bicycle. Walk

Los Angeles Valley College, in cooperation with the South Coast Air Quality Management District, is working to reduce air pollution caused by college employees commuting to and from work. To accomplish the goal of reducing air pollution, the college has instituted the LAVC Rideshare Program. The Rideshare Program entails conducting at least an annual survey of employees’ modes of transportation to determine the college’s AVR (Average Vehicle Ridership), which lets us know how many riders we average per vehicle, our goal being 1.50.  The Rideshare Program also provides monetary incentives to employees who carpool, use public transportation, bicycle or walk to work, and for those using zero emission motor vehicles. Additional services provided include:

  • Help with using Metro RideMatching tool to find potential ridesharers near your home (the zip code list is generated from those signed up for Ride Guides).  Click here to access the RideMatching website.
  • A Guaranteed Ride Home Program so that an employee using these alternative forms of transportation can rest assured that in the event of an emergency the employee will be provided a ride home from work.
  • Providing links to the public transportation agencies serving the area.

*Log your carpool, bicycle, and walk commutes online for additional reward opportunities from Metro.* Click here to register and access the Commute Calendar and log your trips.
