State of Kansas Employee Ride Share
woman flagging down a ride Going My Way?

How many times have you scheduled a trip to a work location and later learned that a coworker or colleague had scheduled a trip to the same destination on the same day that you were traveling? Wouldn’t it have been more economical to have driven only one car? Wouldn’t it have been more fun to have had someone to talk to during that solitary ride? Why not share your next ride?

Instead of traveling in two cars, travel together in one car. This small action on your part could cut greenhouse emissions in half, a significant impact for the environment. You still get where you want to go, on a date and time that meets your schedule while saving money for your agency and maybe even making a new friend or two!

Ride Share provides State of Kansas employees with contact information of other state employees who have scheduled work related travel or who would like to share a ride to a work site.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
  • Who should rideshare to work sites? With higher gas prices, sharing a ride to a work site will save money for your agency. It will also help toward reducing green house emissions by using only one vehicle instead of two or more.
  • How do I use this site? Let other employees know where you are traveling and the date you are traveling. Begin by naming your trip; i.e., Topeka to Lawrence; Lawrence to Salina; Wichita to Dodge City. List your name, telephone and email address so that others can contact you to discuss the ride share. Search listings to find someone who is going to the same destination that are planning on a date and time that is convenient for your travel.
  • Is there a Confirmation Process? This is up to you. Make telephone or email contact and find out where you are to meet for departure. Give your ride share partner home and work phone numbers, email addresses and maybe even cell phone numbers in case of illness or emergency.
  • What can I do to decide if I want to ride with this person? The best way for successful Ride Sharing is to discuss your concerns with the other person before agreeing to share the ride. You may want to discuss issues like smoking, eating and drinking in the car, radio playing, seating arrangements and hot versus cold inside air temperatures.
  • Where can I report concerns about ride sharing? You may contact the Department of Administration, Division of Facilities Management via email to the Employee Ride Share contact to report problems with this website or make suggestions to improve this program.
