Carpooling is a flexible rideshare arrangement between two or more individuals interested in commuting to and from work in the same vehicle. When you share the ride, who you ride with, when you ride, who drives, and how expenses are split are all up to you; giving you the freedom to plan around your schedule.
The real question is "why not carpool?" By sharing the ride to work just a couple days a week you'll:
Reduce how much you spend filling up the tank
Reduce the wear and tear on your vehicle
Reduce your impact on the environment
Reduce the stress related to commuting
Reduce traffic congestion in the Triad
