Carpool with neighbors!
Albany County has arranged a free carpool matching service for you at Carpoolworld! We are very pleased to have you join us in commuting more efficiently and helping to save the natural environment while you save on your transportation expenses.
Please click on the "Sign Up!" button to set up a personal account. You must provide a valid email address. You will be asked to enter the location of your "Trip Origin" (where you live or where you wish to meet your carpool). After you confirm your email account, you will be able to view your matches and contact the other commuters in your Carpoolworld group by phone or email. Possible carpool matches also will be emailed to you periodically. If you do not wish to reveal your street address when you enter a carpool request, merely enter your street name or neighborhood. The broader the parameters you enter for time and mileage, the more possible matches you will receive.
Once you have created your account, you are free to search the site for other commuters who want to carpool. You may search for those who live close to you, who have similar schedules, or who have similar driving preferences. If you are interested in carpooling with someone, simply click the provided link to send them an email, or call them if they provide a phone number. From there you are free to make arrangements that suit you both. The site also includes advanced features to search for carpools and to display the matches on a map, as you wish.
