Getting out of our single passenger vehicles and trying out a new way of getting to work is difficult. RCTC's Commuter Assistance Programs make it easy.
Employers in Riverside County benefit from having a low cost tax-free benefit they can offer employees. Large companies who must meet air quality mandates can take advantage of programs that help them fulfill their requirements.
Commuters can receive incentives to try ridesharing - everything from carpools and vanpools, to taking Metrolink or riding the bus. There are extensive services that support these programs from ridematching, to detailed information on carpool lanes, Park and Ride lots leased by RCTC, and preferred parking at Metrolink stations for those who share the ride to the train.
Training future generations to choose an alternative way to get to school or work is the idea behind the Commuter Exchange, a rolling transportation exhibit that visits classrooms and public events in Riverside County.
