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)
  • CommuteSmart New Hampshire provides resources for people in the Granite State.
  • 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:
