The Melville Chamber provides tools and services to help you make your walk or bike to work safe, convenient and enjoyable. The Bike Buddy matching service, for example, can help you find a walking or biking partner. To sign up for Bike Buddy matching, simply check the box "Would you like to find a Bike Buddy?" in your "Ridematching Preferences" in your profile.
For more information, call 511 and say "Rideshare." Out-of-state travelers can call 888-GO511NY (888-465-1169), select New York City Metro region and then say "Rideshare."
Fresh air, exercise and a less-harried trip are the promises of bicycling or walking. These are great options where facilities exist and if your travel distance is manageable.
Our Bike Buddy matching services can help you find a walking or bicycling partner with a similar trip.
511NY Rideshare also provides free maps showing walking and bicycling paths.
Hard copies of these maps may be obtained by calling 511 and saying “Rideshare” or emailing your request with your complete mailing address.
