RTA Carpool & Rideshare
RTA has established hundreds of carpools throughout the region. Carpoolers either share driving responsibilities or designate
one driver and pay a determined fare each month. Carpoolers can take advantage of the HOV lanes.
The Regional Transportation Authority maintains a database of commuters located throughout Middle Tennessee who are
interested in carpools. Use our convenient Rideshare Program network database to find commuters with similar commute routes
and work hours.
As part of a regular carpool, commuters can:
Determine the specifics of your route, departure times and other details with your individual commuter group.
Convenient Park-and-Ride lots are located throughout the region.
As a regular carpooler, you qualify for the Emergency Ride Home program, which gets you home in an emergency, due to illness, or if you unexpectedly have to work late.
For more information on finding a carpool, call (615) 862-8833.
Computerized ridematching is just one of the many features of the RTA Rideshare program. RTA maintains a database of over 3,000 ridesharers in Middle Tennessee. With simple commute information, new riders are matched to a convenient carpool, vanpool or bus route. Ridesharers can take advantage of HOV lanes.
If you are interested in carpooling or vanpooling, but don't know anyone with whom to share the ride, we can help. With a click, you can access and sign up with our web-based Rideshare Database to assist you in finding a match with a current carpool or vanpool available in your area.
