Welcome to Cherriots Trip Choice

Your commute just got easier! If you’re looking for easy and cost-effective ways to get around, you’ve come to the right place. Cherriots Trip Choice will help you find transportation options that fit your lifestyle, your schedule and your commuting needs.

Find a Ride!
Cherriots Trip Choice offers free carpool and vanpool matching through Drive Less Connect, Oregon's online Ridematching tool.  With this free and easy to use tool, you’ll connect with other smart commuters who are looking to save money, time, and the environment. They are your friends, neighbors and co-workers who have the same travel needs as you.

Carpool and Vanpool
Riding with other commuters is a brilliant way to go. Did you know that carpooling to and from work can cut your driving expenses in half and riding in a vanpool cuts the cost even more? Using Drive Less Connect’s ridematching function, you get a personalized list of carpool partners so you can set up your own carpool or join an existing carpool or vanpool.

To get started, register at Drive Less Connect and receive a customized ridematch list of others that live and work near you.

Commuting to work or school by bike is smart on so many levels. There are health benefits as well as the chance to clear your head and relax while you ride.  Choosing to travel by pedal power and not by car is financially savvy as well – it saves thousands of dollars a year in fuel, insurance and parking. And biking is one of the greenest ways to go!  You can use Drive Less Connect to find a bicycling partner too.

Park and Ride
Park and Rides are a great way to leave your car behind and catch the bus, meet your carpool, or finish your commute with a relaxing bike ride. Just park your car, lock it, and leave it.  There are many convenient Park and Rides throughout the region. Check the Park and Ride listing to find one near you.

Emergency Ride Home Program
Emergencies happen and things come up. That’s why we want to be sure that when you use a planet-friendly way to work, you know you will have a ride home in the event of an emergency. Any employees in Polk, Marion, or Yamhill counties who use a transportation option other than driving to work alone are eligible for this program.  You can register at Drive Less Connect or contact Cherriots Trip Choice for more information.
