Ride Buddies

Our Ride Buddy rides provide individualized support, in the form of custom routes and a personal "buddy", to escort people on their first commute attempt. The Ride Buddy program was piloted with Downtown Columbus–area residents and employees in 2015, with funding from the Mid Ohio Regional Planning Commission; outcomes from that program are detailed here. Another round of programming with State of Ohio employees was offered in 2017, with preliminary outcomes here and a final report here
