At Dibs, we understand that it might not be possible to use Smart Travel for 100% percent of your daily commute. For example, if you live in a remote area without access to public transit or any potential vanpool connections, how can you be expected to get to work using Smart Travel?
The answer: Park and Ride.
Park & Ride lots are a hybrid of driving and public transit that is an awesome way to cut down on time behind the wheel. They are designated, free-to-use parking lots where you can leave your car and hop on a transit bus or join a carpool or vanpool to complete the second half of your commute. The best part? There are many of them located throughout San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Merced counties.
Parking is at your own risk.
Patrons are encouraged to lock cars and not leave valuables in sight. Dibs, the San Joaquin Council of Governments, the Stanislaus Council of Governments and the Merced County Association of Governments are not liable for any damages or theft that may occur while your vehicle is parked at any of the park and ride lots. Rules and regulations for each lot are dependent upon which entity owns and operates the lot. State owned park and ride facilities fall under the jurisdiction of the California Vehicle Code while other locally owned lots may have different regulations.
