A carpool typically consists of two to four people riding together to a similar area on similar schedules. A personal vehicle is typically used to run a carpool. Carpooling reduces your travel costs such as fuel costs, tolls, decreases vehicle wear and tear and the stress of driving. Carpooling improves the environment by reducing the number of cars on the road resulting in less air pollution and congestion.
SHARING A RIDE WITH JUST ONE OTHER PERSON CAN CUT YOUR COMMUTING EXPENSES BY ALMOST HALF!
EMERGENCY RIDE HOME
The Emergency Ride Home service is a "safety net" for commuters working in southeastern PA who either carpool, vanpool or take transit on a regular basis. In the event of an unexpected emergency a registered commuter is provided with a free ride to either their home, car or place of emergency.

GVF works to educate commuters on the facts and benefits of carpooling by organizing educational seminars at employer locations, as well as helping facilitate getting a carpool started. If you are interested in starting a carpool, or would like more information contact Stacey Henrich today.
