We provide information regarding free car and van ridematching services, bus and train schedules, employer and employee incentive program information, teleworking and telecommuting information, cycling information, park and ride lot locators, and the guaranteed ride home program. Commuting is smart for your wallet and smart for your world. Commuters save thousands of dollars on fuel expenses and wear and tear on their car, reduce pollution, meet new people, reduce stress, reduce traffic congestion and help the environment. Commuting to work can be cheaper and faster than driving alone, and is a great way to help eliminate traffice congestion and pollution. Sign up to find a car or van pool at www.commuterconnections. org. It is FREE and is a great way to find a carpool or vanpool. Also, be sure to sign up for Guaranteed Ride Home which, if you walk, ride a bike, carpool, vanpool, or use mass transit at least two days a week, you can be guaranteed a ride home up to four times a year. For more information and details, call HCS at 1-800-924-8646, visit www.harfordcountymd.gov/commuter, or email [email protected].

Mission: Harford Commute Smart programming is designed to provide a continuum of ridematching services and information to County residents and businesses to allow them to make a considered, procative choice about their transportation options. The program is dedicated to helping area residents and employers reduce the number of single-occupancy vehicles and vehicle miles traveled, thereby acheiving the outcomes of less congestion, improvements in air quality, and reduction of carbon footprint. HCS provides free ridematching services to County residents regarding walking, bicycling, carpooling, vanpooling, and using mass transit - including MTA serices and Harford Transit Link.
