Southern Tier Rideshare now available to Schuyler residents.


Schuyler County has joined with Chemung and Steuben Counties to offer residents a way to promote carpooling in the region. Commuters who live or work in the counties can register in the free, easy-to-use, online ridematching system, at SouthernTierRideshare.com and find others who are interested in sharing a ride. 

 In announcing the initiative, County Administrator Tim O’Hearn stated “We are thrilled to be the latest participant in this innovative program. In addition to providing additional mobility modes, this will offer our residents more employment options by reducing the barrier that a lack of transportation creates for jobseekers.”

“Rideshare will give people in our community an additional tool to get to work.  With no cost to the user or the County, this project was a logical addition to our transportation resources.” stated Amber Simmons, Mobility Manager for Schuyler County.

According to Simmons, the program is maintained by NY Department of Transportation and has been successfully operating in the downstate area for many years.  In 2014 Chemung and Steuben counties were chosen to pilot a rural rideshare program.  A campaign was designed to create an upstate brand that reflected the rural nature of our area and encourage people to try rideshare. 

Based on the success of the pilot program the 511NY Southern Tier Rideshare brand was created and is now expanding into additional rural counties.  The rideshare program has a focus on the daily commuter and is designed to allow people to sign up, and seek a ride match from either a radius base or an along their path of travel.  Users can sign up to be riders, drivers or both.

“The key to developing the numbers to populate the database is employer participation and we are pleased that there are currently 9 employers who have committed to creating their own portals to the Southern Tier Rideshare site.”  Tina Hager, Chemung County Transit Specialist explained.

This year 511NY Southern Tier is looking at expanding into additional counties and Schuyler County was pleased to join the effort www.transportationlink-line.org
