Carpooling FAQs

I live in Pennsylvania. I work in Hunterdon County, NJ. Can I sign up for a carpool?

Yes. The carpool program is based upon the commuter’s worksite location. As long as you work in Hunterdon County, NJ, you are eligible for the carpool program.

Do I have to carpool every day?

NO. Carpooling is not an “all or nothing” commitment. Many commuters choose to carpool just 2 days per week. Others prefer to carpool every day. Some commuters share a ride seasonally. It is up to you!

What if I am unable to get in touch with the commuters on the match list that HART provides to me?

Contact HART and we will confirm the information that we sent you is correct, will reach out to the commuters for you, or will run a new match for you.

Why should I register my carpool with HART?

In order to be eligible for the Emergency Ride Home Program and other commuter support programs/incentives, you must register your carpool.

What should I do if I lose my carpool mate or have to leave my carpool?

Contact HART to help you or your carpool mate to find new riders.

What if the person on the match list only wants to ride and doesn’t want to share the driving responsibilities?

Carpooling is usually a reciprocal arrangement. However, it is up to the commuters who are sharing a ride how they would like their carpool to function.

Carpooling Tips

Whether you already know your carpool mate(s) or you have received names of potential mates from HART, consider the following:

Get acquainted.

If you have not met your potential carpool partner(s), plan a face-to-face meeting with them prior to committing to rideshare to determine if you are a good match. Meeting for coffee or lunch in a public space is always a great idea.

Determine your route and schedule.

Establish the morning pickup point(s) and designate a place(s) to meet for the trip home.

Draw up a schedule for driving responsibilities.

If all members of your carpool alternate driving, decide among yourselves if you want to alternate on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.

Share the costs.

If all members of your carpool do not share the driving equally, come to an understanding of how the costs will be shared and agree on payment dates.

Be punctual.

Decide how long the driver is expected to wait. When home pickups are utilized, do not disturb everyone in the neighborhood by honking if a rider is running a few minutes late.

Establish policies.

Smoking or nonsmoking; music and volume; food and drinks. Your carpool will have a better chance of success if possible irritants are discussed initially.

Be specific about the purpose of the carpool.

If it is for commuting to and from work, do not let it become a shopping or errand service.

Establish a chain of communication.

If a driver is ill, or will not be going to work one day, an alternate driver should be notified to ensure that other members of the carpool will have a ride. If a member is ill or will not be working, the driver must be contacted as soon as possible.

Drive carefully and keep the vehicle in good repair.

This includes keeping the vehicle clean and safe. There are others involved. There should be no excuse for excessive speed, use of alcohol, or reckless maneuvers.

Respect your fellow carpooler's wishes.

Especially in the morning, when some people like a time of quiet, be considerate.
