RideShare Delaware is DART First State's program to reduce traffic and encourage alternative transportation arrangements such as carpooling, walking, biking, taking transit, teleworking, and having a compressed work week. The program is supported by state and federal funds as part of Delaware's efforts to maintain air quality and reduce congestion on the roadways.



You can get rewarded just for logging your clean commutes, with a selection of over 500 available rewards. The RideShare Delaware program is completely free of charge and is available for anyone working, living, or attending higher education in Delaware.



Throughout the entire month of February 2019, RideShare Delaware will be tracking members who search for a carpool match and entering them into a raffle to win a one-of-a-kind Movie Basket. Additional information regarding the Carpool Match Contest for February can be found on any of the RideShare Delaware social media pages, on the website.
