When you sign up to become a RideShare user, you can enter your 'home' community. For example, if you live on Denman Island, that is the community that you would select. It does not mean that your rides will necessarily start or end there. It is simply a way to connect with others who live in your own area. If your area is not listed, you can either leave the field blank, or select the community closest to home.
Searching For Rides
To view the most RideShare options, it's best to select 'All Communities'. However, if you prefer to find a RideShare from your own area, you have the option of selecting a particular Community from the list in the Search panel. If you can't find a ride with someone from your area, you can always broaden your search to include 'All Communities'.
