Carpools

A carpool is a group of at least two or more commuters who share a ride to and from work using their personal vehicles. The Neponset Valley TMA has exciting tools to help you establish a carpool or help you join an existing carpool!

About 18% of your budget is spent in gas costs and car maintenance. Adding a carpooler, will add 5 minutes to your total travel time while reducing half of your gas bills if you split with just one. Read more at Buzzle.

If everyone opted to carpool just one day a week, the traffic on the nation’s major highways and roads would be reduced by as much as 20%. Read more at 1800234ride.com

Carpooling provides quality of life benefits, for example reduced stress (less driving for each individual) and new friendships. For individuals who are passengers, the ride time permits a few minutes to unwind, read or catch a nap before reaching at the destination. Read more at sweetadditions.net.

Match with someone who works the same hours and shares your commute. Split travel costs including gas and tolls, and save 50 percent of your costs. Sharing the ride a couple of days a week, saves money, wear and tear on your vehicle, gas, stress, and the environment!

Using NuRide, the state-wide ridematching database, we can help you find a carpool match. Create your profile to get started and then give us a call 781.895.1100 for assistance.
