Answers

Q: How much does it cost to carpool?

A: There is no cost to form a carpool. Riders agree on who will drive and how expenses will be shared. Riders can take turns driving their own cars, or if one person always drives, the other passengers contribute an agreed amount toward the expenses.

Q: Do I have to carpool every day?

A: No. Carpooling is completely flexible and every carpool has its own ground rules. However, ridesharing at least three days a week is needed to qualify you for the Emergency Ride Home program.

Q: What qualifies as an emergency?

A: An emergency is anything that is unplanned and unscheduled that requires you to miss your ride, or to get home sooner than your carpool would be able to. Emergency Ride Home covers rides home from work and does not cover rides from home to work.
