If you commute from Crofton, you know how tough the drive can be, sitting in traffic for what seems to be hours.

If you are looking for a better way to get from here to there, perhaps the county's new program to promote ride sharing -- "Don't Be An S.O.V." -- is for you.

A brochure aimed at drivers of a Single Occupancy Vehicle describes free car pool, van pool, and mass transit services. It also includes an application for a service that can match commuters who share similar home and work locations.

The pamphlet lists the location of the 17 park-and-ride lots and the commuter bus and rail lines that serve the county.

Call 222-RIDE for free car pool or mass transit information and assistance.
