Rideshare Program Rules

  1. 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.
  2. 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).
  3. Ridesharing counts only when driving to the CMC campus - carpooling to work-related events off site does not count toward the $1.50 reimbursement. One of the goals is to reduce the number of cars on campus.
  4. Dropping off children at school in the morning between 6 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Monday through Friday counts as ridesharing only if the distance to school is at least 50% or more of the commute to CMC.
