Carpool

Sharing a ride with another person is one of the simplest and most effective ways to ease your commute, especially on Houston's busy freeways. Carpoolers save money by splitting driving expenses and make better time thanks to free use of High-Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes.  When two or more people share a ride it also relieves traffic congestion, reduces the demand for parking spaces, and reduces air pollution from auto emissions.

Here are a few tools to make sharing the ride easier: 

  • Carma is free mobile app that connects riders and drivers traveling along the same route using GPS-enabled real-time ridematching technology. Create your free Carma account today to start booking rides.
  • METRO STAR's Ridematching service, which helps people identify potential carpool partners. Register here.
  • Waze Carpool is a a free smartphone app that matches people taking similar trips. Drivers with the Waze app can set up a carpool account that matches them with riders going to a nearby location, and then review potential carpool partner profiles to choose the right match and offer a ride. Those hoping to catch a ride must download the Waze Carpool app, create a profile, and can then begin requesting rides.
  • Metropia Houston is an online carpooling service to match people willing to share an empty seat with those in need of a ride. Visit houston-riding.metropia.com and enter your basic trip information; you'll be notified via email when a trip match is made.
