Due to the continued skyrocketing of gas prices across America, people are thinking ways to save money. One of the things people consider to save gas is "carpooling". I came across to this website that connects people with other commuters in the area for a safe, secure carpool experience. They match for your commuting route, whether it is to work or some other destination. This ride-share Web sites offer free services that resemble online dating services: They target people looking to establish relationships, they make
participants submit a personal profile, and they play matchmaker in the hopes that people will hit it off and start riding together.
Here are the websites that I found online.
Another site, www.dividetheride.com targets parents trying to arrange carpools for children's group activities.
I haven't tried any of these, I'm not sure if I will like it. The idea of riding to somebody's car whom you do not know is very uncomfortable. But the websites and the services they offer look very interesting. If you are thinking to try it, just remember to be careful in choosing the person you are dealing with. I will research more about it and let everyone know how was the service.
