Carpool




Did you know carpooling can save you up to $300 per month in fuel, parking, maintenance, insurance, etc. costs, and you are helping reduce harmful emissions?

Sharing a carpool – as a driver or rider – can be a great alternative to riding along to work. However, there are no hard and fast rules on how to run a carpool. Each carpool is set up according to the schedules and preferences of its members. Carpoolers can ride as much or as little as they want.




1. Create an account at Share the Ride NC and login.

2. You will be asked to create a "Trip Profile." Trip Profiles describe a specific trip that you take on a recurring basis. It will include origin, destination and commuting schedule. Your first trip will become your "default trip profile."

3. Go to the "Find Matches" tab and select "Find My Commute Options." This will generate a page of all the commuting options you have, including registered carpool users.

4. Select the "Carpool" tab and you will find all the registered carpoolers, who live close by and have similar commute schedules to you.

5. When you find someone you think might work as a carpooling buddy, contact them! You can work out cost and timing from there!
