The Stillaguamish Tribe’s Rideshare program offers a transportation alternative as a part of the tribe's benefits for employment, for Stillaguamish tribal members and the general public. This is one of the most cost-effective, flexible and convenient commuting alternatives to driving to work.
The Rideshare program encourages people to carpool, vanpool, rider the bus, bike or walk to work. A rideshare is a group of people who ride to work together.
The Tribe provides the vehicle and pays for gas, maintenance, and insurance. Riders sit back and relax on their way to work.
Riders pay a low monthly fee through automatic payroll deduction. Each Rideshare group needs a driver or two and someone to keep the records, which is often done by the driver.
The Rideshare program does their part in conserving our natural habitat by leasing or purchasing clean diesel, bio-diesel, hybrid and/or electric vehicles.
Rideshare groups may form themselves, or the Rideshare Coordinator will form groups by matching shift times, location and work days.
