Explore Carpooling to Work

Carpool: n. an arrangement between people to share a vehicle for regular work journeys or one-time trips.

Several services exist for residents looking to meet people who can carpool with them:

  • Go Vermont helps people looking to carpool in the Green Mountain State (whether you live or work in Vermont)
  • Upper Valley Rideshare HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. Former UVRS members can access your commute information and find carpools by going to New Hampshire Rideshare and using your UVRS login and password.
  • Dartmouth College has a carpool page to help its staff and students share rides

When you register a carpool with one of these services, you become eligible for Emergency Ride Home, which covers the cost of a cab or rental vehicle if an emergency arises and you don’t have a car.

Zipcars are another local resource. You can rent cars on an hourly or daily basis in two locations if you ride in with someone else and need a car during the day:

— Paige Heverly, Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator

Paige Heverly joined Vital Communities in 2017 as the Energy and Transportation Project Coordinator. Hailing from the suburbs of Philadelphia, she moved to Vermont in 2011 and earned a joint BA in Renewable Energy and Ecological Design and Environmental Studies from Green Mountain College. After completing her Master of Energy Regulation and Law from Vermont Law School, Paige worked in energy efficiency consulting in Portland, Oregon. Her love of local food systems, the White River, and the Green Mountains brought her back to the Upper Valley to work on regional issues with localized solutions. Paige is passionate about closing ecological loops and treating waste as food. In her free time, she enjoys baking homemade English muffins, weeding her garden, and writing letters to her pen pals.
