Plan your commute on

Why Carpool?

By sharing a ride, you are helping to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality in the northwest metro region. Carpooling not only benefits the environment but directly benefits you! Sharing a ride saves you time, money and reduces stress. Travel the US 36 Express Lanes for free by carpooling with two or more people!

How to Get Started

For those living and working in the Denver metro area, resources like can help you find registered users who are either part of an existing pool or are looking for a carpool buddy. When you register on, you become part of a regional database with over 10,000 users. To post your interest in carpooling, enter your starting location, ending location and the details for when you would want to meet. The site will then show you carpools and potential carpool buddies you can reach out to.

Rules of the Pool

Cruise stress-free by laying down some ground rules first! Important things to discuss prior to zipping past traffic are:

  1. How long will you wait on late arrivals?
  2. What happens if someone has to stay late at work?
  3. How will you track trips and payment?
  4. What days you’ll carpool. Will this be an everyday carpool, or just a few days a week?
  5. Who is responsible for driving, and on which days?

Establishing the rules of the pool upfront helps ensure that you will have a smooth ride.

Need Another Carpooler?
