The Supporting Partners program enables qualified organizations to donate goods or services to help 511NY Rideshare grow its community of travelers using or seeking sustainable transportation modes. 511NY Rideshare is sponsored by New York State Department of Transportation, and managed and by outside contractors, including CommuterLink, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting alternative transportation in New York.
