Carpooling & Ridesharing
Carpooling is an arrangement between two or more people to share a ride to/from work/school on an ongoing basis.
Ridesharing is a real-time service that arranges one-time shared rides on very short notice.
If you are already part of a carpool, SFU has a Carshare carpooling program for faculty/staff. For more information on the benefits of this programs please see the information/application form.
If you are looking for a carpooling partner (either a driver or a passenger), SFU is a member of the Jack Bell Rideshare program accessible at www.ride-share.com (although it is called ride-share.com it is a carpooling facilitiation website).
Because of their one-time nature, Ridesharing options are generally organic in nature and organized through social media.
