Rideshare Program Guidelines

The College participates in an air quality program that encourages employees to use alternative modes of transportation in arriving to work. Benefits-eligible employees who participate in ridesharing can be reimbursed $1.50/day plus up to $60/month for public transportation such as Metrolink or the bus. Rideshare incentives are considered taxable income.

Ridesharing can only be counted as such if it occurs during the hours of 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., Monday through Friday. These hours are the "peak" transportation hours according to the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD).

Ridesharing counts only when driving to the CMC campus - carpooling to work-related events off site does not count toward the $1.50 reimbursement.

Carpool Parking Spaces

As an enhancement to the CMC parking policy, the College has implemented a carpool-parking program. This program has eight (8) designated carpool parking spaces that are located on CMC’s campus.

In order to park in a designated space, you must participate in ridesharing that day as well as have a carpool-parking permit displayed on top of your dashboard. You may pick up a carpool-parking permit from any staff member in the Human Resources department.

Please remember that:

  • carpool spaces are available on a first-come, first-serve basis,
  • in order to park in these spaces, you must be ridesharing with someone on the day you park in a designated space,
  • you will need to display the carpool parking permit on your dashboard in order to park in a designated space, and
  • parking permits are issued on a semester basis. They must be current at the time you are using the space.
