RIDE Solutions maintains bicycle commuter information that promotes and develops bicycling as a prime alternative mode of transportation for the Roanoke Region.

Commuters registered with RIDE Solutions have access to their Guaranteed Ride Home program, offering up to four free cab rides a year in case of emergencies (which, for bicycle commuters, includes sudden inclement weather), so long as you get to work by bike, foot, carpool, or bus. In addition to commuter assistance, RIDE Solutions works with area businesses to promote commuting options through the workplace partnership program. Anyone commuting into or out from the Roanoke and New River Valleys qualifies, and the program is free.
