What's all the buzz about?

Ridebuzz ridesharing is a proven way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions that lead to global warming, and provides "greener" transportation options to meet your communities' needs. By simply sharing rides, consolidating passengers into fewer vehicles, we can save on fuel costs and drastically reduce carbon dioxide emissions with cost-effective investments towards our transportation infrastructure.

 Support Our Critical Community Work

Transportation access is a vital need for many of our friends and family members, as well as the elderly, low-income and disabled communities.  Mobility connects us to the places we work, live and play and is a significant hurdle for many.  Please consider donating to support our work to reduce emissions and provide shared-ride options to help our under-served communities in need of finding ways to work, medical appointments, school and shopping trips. Ridebuzz is a mission-driven 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization committed to building a more sustainable community.
