We make it EZ to connect with other carpoolers
EZ Ride makes it easy to join an existing carpool. As a Transportation Management Association affiliated with New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJ DOT), we can match other commuters in your area who wish to share a ride to a common destination.
To participate, simply fill out an application and request a list of existing carpools to choose from.
You can be a driver or passenger or both
When you register, indicate your preference to join a carpool as a rider. You’ll receive a list of commuters who live in your area, with similar work destinations.
Establish clear ground rules
Once you’ve have identified a carpool, get together with the driver to request the ground rules:
- Find out who drives and when
- Determine the pickup times and locations, which may be homes, Park and Ride lots or any agreed upon location.
- Determine how the group shares costs. If everyone takes a turn driving, then it’s all sharing. If one person drives, find out how much the other passengers contribute as their share of the expenses.
- Keep a contact list to stay informed. Know if there’s a back-up plan in case of bad weather or something unforeseen.
Carpooling is one of the most popular methods of ride-sharing. Once you try it, you’ll know why.
