What is a Carpool?

Carpools are a simple and effective alternative to driving alone to work each day. In a Carpool, two or more people who live and work near each other share rides on a regular basis. The arrangements vary, but the opportunities are the same—lower commuting expenses, less wear and tear on your vehicle, a break from driving for the passenger and fewer cars on the road.
