Do you need to find a carpool partner? One of the easiest ways to find a carpool partner is to create an account on this site. By creating an account,and going to the Ridematch section of the web site, it will allow you to creat a trip and it then will automatically match you up with other users in the system. It is a confidential carpoolmatching system that will allow you to contact potential matches via e-mail to start the discussion about possibly setting up a carpool
If you know of five to twelve people who live in the same area and want to share a ride to your worksite you might want to consider forming or joining a C-TRAN vanpool.

There are several options available to southbound commuters who want to relax during their commute and leave the driving to someone else. With the cooperative efforts of C-TRAN and TriMet, there may be a transit route that is a perfect fit for you!
Though it may seem like a far bike ride to work, depending on where you live in Southwest Washington, it could be a good option for you. You can ride the whole distance or you could ride your bike to a bus stop or transit center and either leave your bike there if secure facilities are available or you could take your bike with you.
Both the I-5 bridge and I-205 bridge have bike paths that are accessible from both Vancouver and Portland. The City of Vancouver has developed a new bike map that shows routes within Vancouver to the bridges, and then it also includes the City of Portland bike map. If you’d like a copy of the new Vancouver Bike Map, send us an e-mail that includes your name and mailing address and we’ll send one to you right away!
