Together, We’re Driving Sustainability for the St. Louis Region.
By connecting workers and employers, RideFinders carpools and vanpools are paving the way to a sustainable future for our economy, our community, and our environment.
Ridesharing: Easy on You, Easy on Us
When you share the ride, you share the load—for commuters, employers, the climate, and our community. Together, RideFinders drivers and riders are taking more than 3,100 vehicles off the road, cutting 25 million driving miles, and eliminating 1,710,865 lbs of air pollution each year. Annually, our 10,600 registered participants save $3 million in gas, maintenance, and other commuting costs—savings which continue to grow as gas prices increase.
While the numbers are impressive, RideFinders also offers a variety of less quantifiable—but equally tangible—benefits. Commuters using carpools or vanpools enjoy a stress-free ride to and from work with time to read, work, chat, or even nap. And, they form deep and lasting friendships with their fellow ridesharers, creating a more connected and compassionate community.
