Join the growing number of commuters carpooling to work. A carpool is defined as two or more commuters riding together to and from work, either daily or on select days. Carpooling saves money and the environment, and it's easier than ever thanks to free assistance from RideSolutions.
How RideSolutions Helps
RideSolutions maintains a database for the entire central Ohio region containing thousands of commuters interested in sharing a ride. The database includes where commuters live and work, what hours they work and how they prefer to be contacted. Using this information, RideSolutions can prepare a free, customized match list for interested carpoolers.
Who Can Join
Anyone can participate in a RideSolutions carpool. Carpool members agree on individual contributions, whether it be providing a vehicle and driving, contributing to gas and parking costs as a passenger, or a combination of the two. A carpool with multiple vehicles may choose to have multiple drivers who take turns driving at designated intervals.
