Finding a carpool partner is a lot like entering into a new relationship: it starts with compatibility. And while finding a carpool partner can be stressful, we’re here to help. Here are three tips to consider when finding your ride match:
- Honesty – Do you consistently work late or have early-morning meetings? Be honest about your weekly schedule to determine if carpooling together will work for you.
- Accountability – Gas, parking and wear and tear on your car add up. Decide if you want to split a set amount of money each week to cover these expenses, or if another way of splitting the costs is right for you. And there’s good news! Georgia Commute Options pays up to $60 in gas cards for new carpools.
- Personality – Some prefer country music. Others prefer pop. And some folks are chatty while others would rather ease into the morning with coffee and minimal conversation. Get a feel for your potential carpool partner by asking what they like to do in their free time or what kind of music they listen to. It’ll help determine if that commute will be the quickest 30 minutes you’ve ever spent in the car.
