Carpool

Save money, and reduce wear on your personal vehicleYou can organize your own carpool or vanpool, or have your local rideshare office match your group by computer. If you're worried about compatible personalities, try ridesharing on a trial basis.

Benefits of Carpooling

Save money, and reduce wear on your personal vehicle
Use the Cost to Commute Calculator to determine your current cost of commuting. See the American Automobile Association's (AAA) publication Your Driving Costs or the federal government's fuel cost calculator at www.fueleconomy.gov for savings estimates.

Lower your stress
Begin and end your day reading or relaxing, rather than driving through traffic jams or delays.

Benefit from flexibility
Carpool every day, or just once or twice a week. Your contribution will make a difference without the hassles of a long-term commitment or a binding contract.

Sustainability
Carpooling is an environmentally-friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing rides reduces carbon emissions, traffic on the roads, and the need for parking spaces. By joining a carpool, you can fight air pollution and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Live a longer, healthier life by enjoying cleaner air.
The more people who choose alternative transportation over driving, the fewer emissions in the air we breathe.
