Riding with another commuter is a brilliant way to go. Use to discover who is available to carpool or vanpool in a matter of minutes using self-serve online ridematching. Once you've found carpool partners, the rest is easy. 

Lay the ground rules for a smooth commute

Drivers and driving schedule

Decide who will drive when. Make sure everyone has a list with each carpooler's home and work phone numbers in case of illness or emergency.

Meeting place

Choose a convenient meeting place, like a Park & Ride lot, or pick each person up at home.


Decide on costs. If you share the driving equally, you don't have to exchange money. If one person drives, divide the cost among the passengers.

Helpful hints

Set a few rules, like: How long you'll wait for late riders; Smoking or nonsmoking; Food and drink allowed/not allowed in the car; Music, news or nothing.

Make sure the vehicle is running well and has gas.

Check your insurance—some policies offer rate reductions for ridesharing.

Check for preferential, free or reduced-rate parking. It all pays off!
