Massachusetts Rideshare Regulation

The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Massachusetts Rideshare Regulation (310 cmr 7.16) requires many businesses with 250 or more employees and educational facilities with 1,000 or more students and employees combined to develop plans and set goals for reducing by 25 percent the number of times commuters drive alone to work or school.

As part of this process, your organization needs to:

  • Survey current commute patterns
  • Identify available commuting options
  • Set goals for reducing drive-alone trips
  • Offer options and incentives for reducing drive-alone trips
  • Review how commute patterns change as a result

MassRIDES can assist employers with the implementation of programs that support the rideshare regulation and encourage employee participation. Contact your MassRIDES outreach coordinator for assistance.

Find detailed information on the Massachusetts DEP website .
