Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory welcomes you to the 511NY Rideshare ridematching service, a new way for commuters to find transportation options. This easy-to-use and free website provides information on smarter travel options including carpooling, public transportation, shuttles, and bicycling (click on the icons above for more info).

Simply log in (or create an account if you are not yet a member) and go to the "Find a Ridematch" page to see who you could carpool with to school or work! Once you register, you will be able to find other travelers who have similar travel routes and patterns. The system will allow you to easily communicate with potential rideshare partners.   (Check back often as new registrants are added to the database each day). 

Need help? Contact 511NY Rideshare Customer Service by calling 511 and say "Rideshare." Customer Service is available to help Monday through Friday, 6:00 am - 7:00 pm. Out-of-state travelers call 888-GO511NY (888-465-1169), select New York City Metro area and then say "rideshare", or email 511NY Rideshare Customer Service: info@511NYRideshare.org.
