Carpool

PoolPerks_logoRGB‘POOL PERKS: Carpooling can help you save time, money and vehicle wear and tear while sharing the driving duties.  It only takes two or more commuters riding in a personal vehicle to form a carpool. 

JoinPool Perks, the two-person carpool program from Livable Buckhead and earn a $20 gas card each month. In addition, you may qualify to earn up to $150 for adding a person to your commute and may qualify for a free taxi ride home in case of a personal emergency.

How to get started carpooling:

  1. Find a Carpool Partner. If you don’t have a carpool partner, you can easily find someone who works and lives near you with the same schedule through Georgia Commute Options
  2. Meet your carpool partner(s).  Arrange a sit-down meeting/lunch at a neutral location with your new carpool partner(s). Livable Buckhead’s outreach staff  is more than happy to assist you in coordinating this meeting.
  3. Designate a meeting spot for your morning and afternoon pick ups.  There are numerous park and ride lots in the metro Atlanta area.
  4. Designate meeting times for both morning and evening pick ups.
  5. Determine driving responsibilities.
  6. Register for ‘Pool Perks.

$40-$60 GAS CARDS from Georgia Commute Options: The more riders in each carpool, the fewer cars we have on our roads every day. That’s why carpools with 3 or more riders can qualify for a little extra cash.

Starting today, the ride-sharing service is offering half-price UberPOOL rides to and from MARTA stations during commuting hours. 

The 50 percent off deal is good on weekdays from 5 a.m to 10 a.m. and from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Running from July 31 through September 29.
