How Carpools Work

A carpool is an informal arrangement between two or more people who live and work in the same areas with similar schedules. Driving and the cost associated with driving are mutually agreed upon by the individuals in the carpool.

When searching for a carpool partner, you can control how far to search, how flexible your schedule might be and whether to restrict to only fellow employees of the company you work for or to search the entire database.

Have our web site search for you. If you don't initially find a carpool partner, enable our New Match Alert feature. And NJ Rideshare will periodically check for new or updated profiles that match your commute criteria. If a match is found for you, you will be automatically notified. To enable this feature, click on the 'registration' tab and then 'reminders & alerts.'

If you have questions, visit our Contact Page for contact information for your Transportation Management Association (TMA) or call 1-800-245-POOL (7665) to be connected to your TMA during business hours.
