RideShare provides citizens residing within the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission and the Central Shenandoah Planning District Commission with information on how to commute without relying on a single occupancy vehicle. The service is also the lead regional agency for issues related to transportation demand management (TDM). The service began in the 1980's and works to provide matches between people looking to carpool.

RideShare offers free carpool and SchoolPool matching, vanpool coordination, and a Guaranteed Ride Home program to provide free rides home in an emergency. RideShare also works with employers to develop and implement traffic reduction programs, and markets the region's Park and Ride lots. Interested commuters can register at www.rideshareinfo.org to instantly find potential carpool matches.

RideShare is a member of the Commuter Information Team (CIT), a partnership that includes JAUNT, Charlottesville Area Transit (CAT), University Transit Service (UTS), and Greene County Transit. CIT acts as a transportation information and referral center for the region, as well as contributing to joint marketing and awareness efforts such as Charlottesville's annual Clean Commute Day in May.
