There are more than 90 miles of HOV lanes in metro Atlanta

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.  On average, metro Atlantans spend more than 66 minutes daily just driving to and from work.  That is more than five hours each week.  Carpooling can significantly reduce that time for you.

According to AAA, the cost per mile for operating and ownership costs is 52.2 cents, for an average size car, when driven 15,000 miles per year. That means commuting alone costs each of us more than $15 each day, or about $330 each month. That doesn’t include extras like parking costs.  With all the cost savings, why aren’t you carpooling already? 

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 RideSmart or you can download and complete the paper ridematch request form
  2. Meet your carpool partner(s).  Arrange a sit-down meeting/lunch at a neutral location with your new carpool partner(s). BATMA 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 Carpool Incentives program.
