Not everyone in Massachusetts has easy access to a personal vehicle or public transportation. Ride Match was designed to help fill the gaps and provide the state’s most vulnerable populations, and the agencies that serve them, with a way to easily identify all the transportation options within their communities.
In 2010, the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) was awarded a Mobility Management grant to develop an in-depth directory of transportation options that would enhance customer service by connecting people with the knowledge about transportation services in their community and how to use them.
To accomplish this goal, GATRA reached out and formed partnerships with multiple agencies and organizations as well as local taxi operators, private, public, non-profit and community-based organizations and created the Ride Match database and online resource.
Originally, Ride Match was intended to be a comprehensive database for Southeastern Massachusetts only, but other regions asked if they could participate in the project. In 2015, MassDOT awarded GATRA a Community Transit Grant to expand the database and four regional transit authorities agreed to participate in the pilot project. Today, all 15 regional transit authorities as well as the MBTA participate in the state-wide program, making Ride Match an essential service for area agencies, medical centers and individuals searching for accessible transportation options in Massachusetts.
