Sun Rideshare, a free regional commuter assistance program of Pima Association of Governments, helps you understand the benefits of using alternative forms of transportation that are essential to reducing traffic congestion and keeping our region's air clean to benefit you and our region.
When you share the ride through carpooling or vanpooling, or use alternative tranportation such as biking, walking or using our region's seamless transit system, other perks include saving money, reducing stress, improving your commute schedule, improving your health, making new friends and reducing our dependence on foreign oil.
The Sun Rideshare online commuter matching database provides quick information and helps you find the best transportation option for your daily commute or trips to other destinations.
Learn about the benefits of carpooling in Sun Rideshare's new "Do your share" educational video. Click on the image or below to view the 90-second message and then sign up for free in the Sun Rideshare commuter database to join the sharing community.

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. See rules below.
Sign up now with Sun Rideshare to find a carpool partner or vanpool group and start earning points.
