Log your trips or post a carpool-selfie to win!

Ever wonder why carpoolers have so much fun? They can reduce their travel time, socialize, make new friends AND save money. During Carpool Week, we encourage people like YOU to try carpooling to work, school, and beyond!

Find a Carpool Match

Start your carpool journey today by finding a match with our free online tool. To begin:

  1. Login to your existing account or register a new account on the Smart Commute tool.
  2. Join a network, such as your workplace, school or GO station to find fellow carpoolers traveling to the same destination.
  3. Share your A to B. Set your origin (A) and destination (B) and the tool will display other users who have a similar trip.
  4. Save this trip as a “favourite” so that others can ride-match with you. You can modify and add multiple trips to increase your chance of finding a carpool partner.
