Does the institution have a carpool matching program?:

A brief description of the program:

Carpooling might even reduce your commuting time: Vehicles with at least two riders are usually eligible to take the HOV lanes on highways that have HOV lanes. And carpooling reduces your carbon footprint, helping the environment.

Features for Carpoolers

AlterNetRides has some great features for carpoolers:

* Carpool management areas
* Instant phone notification by voice or text
* Yahoo! mapping to help you locate other ride sharers
* A “thumbs-up” rating system so you can rate the rides you take and find the best rides

DCCCD’s AlterNetRides service lets you refine your ride preferences when you sign up. You can offer to share the driving, or you can ask to be a passenger only. You can specify what you’d like to hear on the car radio; you can weed out smokers. By filling in a field with your estimate of the dollar value of each round trip, you can indicate whether and how much you would compensate drivers for rides.
