Carpooling and vanpooling are effective ways to help cut commuting costs and reduce frustrations that come with driving alone. And if HOV lanes are accessible on your route to work, you may also save time on your commute.
The Commuter Connections ride share connector application was designed to provide an informal setting where Washington area commuters can connect with existing carpools and vanpools looking for immediate riders or commuters looking to start new rideshare situations. The application is one of the most convenient ways to locate others in search of the same.
Registration is quick and easy!
Commuters simply establish screen names and post messages seeking partners. Dozens of separate forums are made available for commuters from each of the counties within and surrounding the greater Washington and Baltimore areas. The Bulletin Board also includes forums for commuters who travel from as far out as Delaware, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
Here’s an actual posting from one of the local forums:
Vanpool to Rosslyn and D.C
“Long-running vanpool is looking for new riders. We leave the North Dulles Transit Center at 6:10am and return at 5:15pm. Beat the high gas prices, reduce the wear/tear on you and your car, and help the environment!”
