A carpool is 2 - 8 people sharing a ride to a common destination. It is often called ridesharing and it reduces commute costs for employees. The definition of a carpool in the City of Roseville’s Transportation Systems Management (TSM) Ordinance includes employees who work for different employers as well as non-employed persons, excluding children, as long as they are in the vehicle for the majority of the total trip distance.
- Carpooling is efficient and cost-effective for any commute over 10 miles.
- Carpooling reduces the number of vehicles on the road and helps reduce air pollution.
- Whether one person drives and the other(s) contributes to the expenses, or the carpoolers alternate driving responsibilities, carpooling can be an economical and convenient way to commute to and from work.
- Carpoolers save money and reduce stress by sharing the time and cost of the commute.
- Carpoolers are eligible to park in preferred parking spaces, which are typically closer to the employee entrance than other employee parking.
- Carpool to work as often as possible – even one or two days a week can make a difference.
