Commuting by carpool or vanpool is a great way to use an alternative means of transportation. Carpools and vanpools connect commuters or travelers going the same way. This option is good for people who work the same shift or work in the same area. When used in conjunction with public transportation, walking or bicycling, carpooling can reduce or eliminate the need to own a personal vehicle.
