I’ve been a ‘casual carpool’ rider (and occasional driver) for the last 4 years, commuting into San Francisco daily. This ingenious system of commuting which was created by commuters themselves 30 years ago, provides a faster and less costly commute than the options of ferryboat, BART, bus or driving. The bonus is that it makes for less cars on the freeways.
Every one who does this has stories, or comments to tell about their casual carpool experience, or perhaps a communication to share with other riders and drivers.
This blog, Pooling Around gives us a place to do that.
I will share my thoughts each day and look forward to reading your stories and comments.
