October is Carpool to Work Month — Expired

Goodbye congestion, Hello CarpoolGive your commute a lift – try carpooling!

It’s a great time to get started with a carpool. We maintain a list of people who are interested in carpooling. Use our online Matching Tool, enter your commute and see possible carpool partners.

If you explore carpooling in October, you could win one of these great prizes:

  • Weekly prizes of $50 gift cards for gas or coffee (for new users who create a commuter account; two winners each week)
  • Grand prizes of a portable vehicle GPS system; portable satellite radio plus 3-month subscription; Kindle Fire; or Galaxy tablet
     

Why carpool?

  • Cut your commuting costs in half or more
  • Use freeway express lanes and ramp meter bypasses
  • Save on the wear and tear of your car
  • Reduce the stress of fighting congestion

If you carpool to work at least three times per week, you’re eligible for our Guaranteed Ride Home program in case you have to work late or get home due to an emergency. You also may be eligible for preferred parking and cheaper auto insurance rates!

Eligibility requirements:

• New users must create an account here that is public and searchable.

• Must be 18 years or older

• Must provide name and valid email address

• Active users are eligible for a grand prize if their profiles are public and if they performed a carpool search in October.
