Capitol Rideshare has launched an interactive commute solution on the RideAmigos transportation demand management (TDM) platform. State employees can sign up for an account at CapitolRideshare.RideAmigos.com. Employees must use their work email addresses to create an account. Your Capitol Rideshare RideAmigos account unlocks trip planning tools, commute tracking, contests and more! RideAmigos now powers several Capitol Rideshare programs, including Commuter Club, carpool parking and ride-matching services.
New users must sign up from the home page. Click on the Getting Started button, which will take you to a log-in screen. Existing users enter their email address and password.

This includes your home address and your work address. The system will validate the addresses. In the next screen, you will connect to your network through drop-down menus for your agency name and location where you work. You must also include your EIN in the employee ID field.

Trip Planning and Ride Matching
Having a RideAmigos account will allow you to review your available options for commuting to and from work--and for trip planning while at work. This includes transit and pooling options as well as biking and walking. The interactive trip planner also allows you to review traffic conditions when choosing a mode and a route.
RideAmigos offers the ability to find a carpool partner based on the employee’s work schedule and route. Because the Capitol Rideshare RideAmigos network is available exclusively to state employees, the potential carpool partners are other state employees.
