Have you considered sharing the ride to work? Our Cool to Pool program makes it easy!
If you would like a custom Cool to Pool rideshare program for your organization, please contact Elizabeth DeJesus at (904) 306-7505.
You don’t need a car full of strangers to form a carpool.
All you need is one other person who shares your general trip route and work schedule. We can help you find that person.
Concerned about privacy?
So are we. Match lists are distributed with the phone number you choose to provide and work address only. All personal information such as home address is confidential and is only used by the North Florida TPO Commuter Services Program. After you complete the simple commute profile, you can request a list of possible carpool partners from the Cool to Pool commuter matching database. You’ll only see a person’s name, the phone number they choose to provide, and work address.
If you’re already carpooling to work three days a week, registration will enable you to qualify for our free Emergency Ride Home program and other benefits.
You won't be stranded with our Emergency Ride Home benefit.
Register with us if you carpool, vanpool, bike or walk from home to work at least three days per week and live and work in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau or St. Johns County. We’ll provide up to four free emergency taxi rides to your car or home per year. If taxi service is not available, we will provide a rental car.
