Carpool Tips

  1. Reach Out: Contact potential matches.
  2. Meet Up: Go for coffee or lunch with matches and ensure it’s a good fit.
  3. Exchange Information: Get each other’s phone numbers and email addresses and establish a communication chain.
  4. Give It a Try: Test out the carpool a few times to see how it works out.
  5. Make a Schedule: Schedule driver days/weeks/months and stick to it.
  6. Make a Backup Plan: Life is hectic. Make sure to have a backup plan in case of emergencies, vacations, illness, etc.
  7. Determine the Costs: If driving time isn’t split, determine the costs and set up a payment schedule.
  8. Set Ground Rules: Deciding things like what radio station to listen to, whether food and drinks are okay and if smoking is allowed, for example, will save possible tension later.
  9. Enjoy the Ride!
