What is carpooling?

Carpooling uses private vehicles for shared travel. Costs, meeting points and other details are discussed and agreed on. Carpoolers then meet and carry out their shared trip(s) as planned. Carpooling is commonly used for commuting, but is also popular for longer leisure trips.

Carpooling reduces the costs involved in travel by dividing expenses such as fuel, parking fees, and car maintenance between the members of the carpool. Carpooling where the driving is shared can also decrease driving stress as each driver gets a break from being at the wheel.
