Carpool Week

Carpool Week is February 5 to 11, 2018. Carpooling partners unite! Find your match today! Follow the A-B-C’s below to find your carpool partner and start carpooling to work, school or your local GO station.

A) FIND YOUR MATCH – use the Smart Commute Tool to find your carpool match.

  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.
  5. For more detailed instructions on how to use the Smart Commute tool, please view our how-to-videos
