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.
Trip Logging: visualize savings and earn points to enter contests!
Each alternate mode trip you log earns points; alternate modes include carpool, vanpool, transit, compressed work week, hybrid or electric vehicle, bike, walking or telework. You can redeem your points for contest entries. Once you have at least 100 points, scroll to the bottom of your dashboard to your My Rewards section. Click on RideAmigos Sign Up and Trip Logging Points. Under your points total, click on Show Details and Inventory. The dashboard expands to show you the awards available to you and the points required to enter the drawing. Click on the drawing you wish to enter. If you have the points available, you can redeem points for up to three entries. Example: If you have a points balance of 300 and each entry is 100 points, you can redeem the balance of your points for three drawing entries.
