Carpool Registration

Are you already carpooling? It pays to register your carpool with Gohio Commute. Save money by finding additional riders to share the cost of your commute. Drivers and riders of registered carpools are also eligible for MORPC’s Emergency Ride Home benefit.

To register your carpool, join your partner’s trip by copy/pasting your partner’s Trip ID in the “My Commutes” widget within the Gohio Commute Member Portal dashboard.

Carpool FAQs

Q: I’ve found a potential carpool match in the Gohio Commute system. Now what?

A: Reach out to them! When you message someone about carpooling, they’ll be able to email you back directly (using the email associated with your Gohio Commute account). Once you have made contact, we recommend setting a preliminary meeting in order to discuss the expectations of the carpool. For example, you may want to lay out what times the carpool will depart, music preferences, or whether or not you’re okay with food and drinks in your car.

Q: How can I determine who sees my saved trip in Gohio Commute?

A: You can set your trips to be visible to (1) the general public, (2) those within your employer network, or (3) invisible to everyone. Other users will not see your exact address in the system.

Q: I don’t have an email address. How can I use Gohio Commute to find carpools?

A: Contact us at 1-888-742-RIDE(7433) and we’ll assist you out over the phone.

Q: Do I need a car to participate in carpooling?

A: No, you could be in a carpool as a passenger. However, we do encourage you to offer to pay for gas and parking.

Q: I ride with my spouse every day. Does that count as carpooling?

A: Yes, contact us and register your carpool at the same time you register for the Emergency Ride Home program. Remember, each carpool passenger must be registered to use the Emergency Ride Home program.
