Carpool/WI Rideshare

Save Money & Go Green with a Carpool

The Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) Rideshare program is a free service that helps commuters make safe connections with other people who live in the same city or town and work at the same organization so they can set up a daily carpool. Most MRMC carpoolers meet at a Park & Ride site or another mutually-convenient location.

Commuters who combine forces can save money on gas and car-related expenses, lessen air pollution, and reduce their personal carbon footprint. They may also save time by using the high-occupancy vehicle (or carpool) lanes on highway on-ramps.

How the Wisconsin DOT Rideshare Program Works

Commuters simply create a user profile with their start/end locations. The system then matches two or more commuters who have similar needs and provides contact information so they can coordinate a personal pick-up and drop-off system. The DOT also offers a "Bike Buddy" rideshare program for bike commuters who want the benefits of riding with another cyclist for safety and social reasons.

MRMC recommends meeting at state Park & Ride lots. Lots in Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, and Washington counties are listed in the map above; find lots in other Wisconsin counties here.
