Carpooling

What is carpooling?

Carpooling involves two or more people sharing a ride. By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person’s travel costs such as fuel costs, tolls and the stress of driving.

How do I find a carpool partner?

The Smart Commute Online Tool connects riders and drivers with nearly identical commutes based on their home and work addresses. The platform connects carpool partners from the same local community, making it easy to carpool with neighbours and colleagues you know or haven’t met yet.

Where can I park my car?

There are several carpool parking lots located along major corridors within and around the Region of Durham

Unexpected emergency?

If your employer is registered as a Smart Commute Durham member workplace, you can request reimbursement of up to $75 for your emergency transportation costs through the Emergency Ride Home (ERH) program.
