Carpooling is as easy as it sounds — sharing a ride with other travelers or commuters who have similar starting and destination locations. You can participate in carpools as a driver only, passenger only or in alternating roles. Not only does carpooling save money, but during a transportation or weather related emergency it may be the only way to get to work.
