If you carpool with a County employee both you and your carpool partner should complete a Rideshare Registration Form and we will register the two (or three!) of you as a carpool in your personal vehicles! If you carpool with a non-County employee, you can still complete the Registration Form and indicate that you carpool with a non-County employee!
Transit Program/Bus or Rail to Work
Commuter Services encourages employees who live 5 miles or less from their worksite to give transit options a try! Riverside Transit Authority (RTA) serves western Riverside County, Omnitrans serves San Bernardino County, and Sunline Transit serves Coachella Valley. These transit companies have many routes and times that can accommodate most County schedules! These companies may also have CommuterLink options for folks that live farther away and travel to higher metropolitan areas with minimal stops. Transit is a cost-effective way of traveling to work. Metrolink also provides several transit lines into the metropolitan Riverside area including La Sierra and Downtown worksites.
In addition, Commuter Services can purchase your monthly bus transit passes on the County employees' behalf on a pre-tax basis and mail your transit pass directly to your home! are a Metrolink rider, we can provide you with a pre-taxed Metrolink quick card for your daily, weekly or monthly passes!!

Riding your bike is a fun and healthy way of commuting to work! Bike lockers may be located at some worksites. Contact Commuter Services about bike locker locations and how to obtain one for your bike!
Walk to Work
If you live less than a mile from work, Commuter Services encourages you to try walking to work! Clothing lockers and showers can be located at the Riverside County Administrative Center and the Indio Administrative Center. If you are a walker and would like to obtain a locker, contact the Commuter Services for locker and shower access!
