Through its partnership with the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), Georgia DOT participates in RideSmart, a service that pairs commuters who may have similar schedules and work locations with potential carpool partners or vanpools with available seats. Participation in the incentives-based program is free, and is offered using funds from Georgia DOT and its transportation partners.
Why Carpool or Vanpool?
There are many advantages to participating in a carpool or vanpool:
- Reduces travel time with use of high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes
- Saves money on gasoline and reduces wear and tear on vehicle
- Reduces peak-period vehicle trips and traffic congestion
- Helps reduce air pollution and harmful gas emissions
