Way to Go is a region-wide carpool and vanpool-matching program run by the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG). It allows users to create accounts and set parameters such as to/from location, time of day, flexibility, and whether they want to ride or drive. Users can choose from several categories:
Good option for commuters who live more than 15 miles from work and aren’t well-served by transit. Passengers split a low monthly fare and share either a 7-seater minivan or a full size van that seats 15. There are currently over 70 vanpools running in the region.

Ridesharing is also an option for families who drive their children to school. More than 40 schools and 7,000 families in the Denver/Boulder metro area participate in the SchoolPool program. Visit the SchoolPool website to view participating schools and register.
The cost savings of sharing your ride are easy to quantify. The more passengers sharing the cost, the less each individual has to contribute. Determine the true cost of your commute with our Cost of Driving Calculator.
Some employers offer subsidies for employee van and carpools (which are also tax-deductible), priority parking spaces, discounted parking, or prize drawings.
