Not to be confused with end-to-end car-sharing and ride-hailing services, carpooling helps private car owners find ride matches with the same route & schedule to share car journeys. Carpooling provides people with a way to reduce costs and stress of commuting and in most cases allows drivers to make extra cash and reduce commutes by utilizing HOV (high-occupancy vehicle) lanes to get to where you're going faster.
Here are some carpool organizations available in Metro Vancouver:
To register your company for carpooling services, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org through your work email.
