Commuters that live near each other and share a common destination form the simplest and most common "carpool" arrangement. Carpooling is an ideal cost saving arrangement, particularly for those individuals who commute long distances to and from school/work each day and have limited access to public transit and few transportation options available to them.

Carpooling is a simple way for students to save money, reduce congestion and conserve energy along the way. Students considering carpooling as an alternate means of commuting should log on to the internet-based carpool ride-matching system offered by the Black Creek Regional Transportation Management Association.

For more information or to register for the free ride-matching service, go to www.bcrtma.org or www.ssp.yorku.ca/transportation.
