There are two basic forms of ridesharing: carpooling and vanpooling.
A carpool consists of two or more people with a similar commute pattern riding together in a private vehicle on a continuing basis.
More than 40% of Anne Arundel County residents work outside of the county, so it's likely that some of your neighbors have a similar commute pattern.
When you register to carpool you will receive a list of people who are also interested in ridesharing and who live and work near you. Just call the people on your list to join an existing carpool or create a new one.
A vanpool is comprised of up to 15 people with a similar commuter pattern.
The group typically secures a van from a third-party vendor and one person drives while the others share the monthly operating costs. Many vanpools meet at park and ride lots.Register to join a vanpool or visit VPSI Commuter Vanpools for information on forming a vanpool. Your employer can provide you with up to $100 per month as an incentive to vanpool.
