Carpool and Vanpool

Carpooling is two or more people going together in one vehicle to their destination.  Carpooling is easy because few people are involved; a carpool is flexible and can usually accommodate everyone’s needs.  In a carpool, you save on gas and reduce wear and tear on a vehicle.

  • 36 Commuting Solutions offers free online carpool-matching.  Visit our carpool-matching website at mywaytogo.org to log your trips and be connected with other commuters interested in carpooling who share similar work hours and trip points.  If you would like to establish a carpool network for your business, allowing employees to search for co-workers to carpool with, please contact info@36commutingsolutions.org.
  • SmartTrips, a service of the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization, provides free online carpool matching for residents in the North Front Range region.  Call 800-332-0950 to get started.  

A vanpool is a group of five to twelve people with similar commutes (consistent start time and destination) who share a van provided by a vanpool program.  In exchange for a monthly fee, the vanpool program provides the vehicle and covers the cost of fuel, insurance and vehicle maintenance.

  • Way to Go can match you with vanpool partners who live and work near you.  Call 303-458-POOL to join or start a vanpool.  Vanpool monthly fares range from $61 to $160 per month based on one-way mileage and size of van.

Consider pairing your bicycle trip with transit!  RTD’s Bike-n-Ride program makes it easy to combine transit and bicycling.  All buses except the Denver 16th Street Mall shuttles are equipped with bike racks. 

Telework

Telework brings work to employees through technology rather than bringing employees to work by traveling. Teleworkers are employees who work at home one or more days each week instead of commuting to the office.   Employers that offer telework programs benefit from increased employee productivity, reduced overhead costs, and decreased demands for office and parking space.

The Denver Regional Council of Government provides free telework consultations to metro Denver businesses.  For more information, please contact Catherine at info@36commutingsolutions.org.
