Sun Rideshare

Sun Rideshare, a regional commuter assistance program of Pima Association of Governments, offers transportation alternatives essential to the region’s seamless transit system.

Sun Rideshare provides services that make alternative transportation, such as carpooling, vanpooling, mass transit, biking, and walking more affordable, accessible and convenient.

The Sun Rideshare online Travel Database provides quick information and helps you find the best transportation option for your daily commute or trips to other destinations.

Choosing an alternative mode of transportation has never been easier and provides many benefits for you and your community: cost and time savings, reduced congestion, improved air quality, and less dependence on foreign oil.

Sun Rideshare Travel Database

The Sun Rideshare Travel Database is an online ride matching database that provides Pima County residents assistance in finding a carpool, vanpool or convenient public transit options. Thousands of people are signed up in the Sun Rideshare Travel Database, many of whom are looking to save money by carpooling.

Sign up and you will be matched with the best candidates who live and work near you and have similar work hours.

If you already use an alternative mode of transportation,  sign up to take advantage of Sun Rideshare's free Guaranteed Ride Home program, to log your trips for a chance at free rewards and to get the latest rideshare news about upcoming events and happenings.

Try an alternative mode and win

Everyone can use a little reward now and again. You can become eligible to earn Sun Rideshare rewards by simply using an alternative form of transportation to work or other destinations.

The monthly Sun Rideshare 2017 Rewards Program is brought to you in partnership with Walgreens. Participants will be eligible to earn Walgreens gift cards, ranging from $25 to $100.



To qualify, participants must log their alternative mode trips in the Sun Rideshare Travel Calendar.  Each one-way trip logged earns one point.  All commute trips and personal trips earn points. Participants qualify for the prize drawing by earning the minimum number of points*, trips or pounds of reduced pollution specified each month. Points will not be cumulative as in previous years. You can only win once.

You can go back 60 days to log trips, but future trips cannot be entered. Contest rules change each month.

Sign up now with the Sun Rideshare Travel Database to find a carpool partner or vanpool group and to start earning points.
