How do I know if carpooling is right for me?

You won’t know until you try! Going in, you should be willing to do two things. First, set up a carpool schedule that is convenient for all participants. Second, be open to modifying your daily routine to accommodate others.

MDC Carpool Matching

Carpool members can include school or work associates, or people who live near you and share a similar schedule. Many times, our RideShare Program helps commuters meet their neighbors or even make a new friend.

Need help finding someone to carpool with? MDC’s transportation partner, South Florida Commuter Services, offers a Carpool Matching Service that can help you find someone to share the ride with.
