Commuting for free with Casual Carpool


I wrote a post for CNBC’s “On the Money” blog about commuting for free with Casual Carpool, a great system for sharing rides and saving money that’s very active in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Washington, D.C./Arlington, Virginia area. I’ll be contributing posts to their blog regularly but will cross-post them here and on Twitter.

Does anyone know of Casual Carpool-like systems in other areas? I saw reports of rides organized in Houston and Seattle, but I couldn’t find web sites listing pick up locations. Anyone know?

    Also, another great site is The great thing about them is they are a totally free site and help people find others who live and work nearby to carpool with. They also offer contests and a carpool savings calculator so that people can see how much money they can save by carpooling.
