Traveling with other riders who share similar commutes lets you save time, save money on commuting costs, meet new people, enjoy some company on your commute, and helps smooth traffic flow.
Carpooling has changed and evolved to meet many needs—from the traditional and informal commuting with neighbors, co-workers and friends to more technology-driven rideshare apps you may join as a driver or rider so you don’t need a car to participate. For the latest ridesharing apps, use your favorite search engine to find the ones available in your area as well as check with your employer as they may promote specific vendors and often cover the costs of rides.
Metro’s long-range plan, recognizes the importance of shared mobility options, such as vanpools or carpools, to improve the efficiency of the transportation system. The plan envisions a future where on-demand carpooling programs are an important part of Metro's suite of transportation services, and calls for Metro to develop both ridesharing and park-and-ride options and partnerships with private companies to supplement transit service in King County.
