What is a Carpool?
A carpool is two or more commuters sharing a ride to the same company or several companies located near one another.
The advantages of carpooling include:
- Savings on commute costs
- Use of High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes
- Reduced wear and tear on your vehicle
- Flexibility: carpool every day, a few days a month, or anywhere in between
- Lowers stress from always having to drive (in traffic) every day

Casual Carpooling is a flexible approach to commuting where drivers who wish to use the HOV lanes offer rides to potential passengers who line up at a common, convenient site to wait for rides into San Francisco. Two popular casual carpool locations in Solano County are the Fairfield Transportation Center in Fairfield and the Curtola Park & Ride lot in Vallejo.
