Great commuting option

"Park and Ride offers an awesome commuting option. I love that I can take a train into work that is comfortable and clean. The train goes from point A to point B with few stops. I do not have to worry about traffic … As an added perk, the government reimburses some of my public transportation." 

These agencies provide information and support to commuters to help them make decisions about their travel.

Your local agency can tell you about transportation options available and how to use or arrange for those.

Click on the agency in your area to find out about carpools, vanpools, public transportation (such as commuter or express bus), and other options, programs and services.
