Welcome to Haliburton Rideshare!
In a large county like Haliburton where people don’t always live close to each other or town, it can be hard to get around. Ridesharing is a great way to get to know people and expand your transportation options.
Share the ride, make connections.
What is Ridesharing? Ridesharing involves two or more travelers sharing a ride in a private vehicle, where both the driver and the passengers have a similar starting point, end point and/or route. For regular travel to the same place, this is also known as carpooling.
Share the ride, so no one gets left behind.
Sharing rides with family and friends, and through the haliburtonrideshare.ca website are great ways to use technology to grow our connections as a tight knit community. Share a ride to an event, a meeting, recreation or simply a trip into town.
Share the ride, get where you need to go.
