I would, but none of my close neighbours work nearby and none of my co-workers live near me. Usually only a 10-15 minute drive on most days.

No. Long ago, I did try it once... five of us cramped into one car... A really fat woman who was a hysterical backseat driver. An old man constantly trying to convert everyone over to his radical political beliefs and who was a radio station nazi. Another clumsy woman who frequently spilled her food inside the car's interior... hahahaha....gotta laugh about it all...

I do when someone from the motel needs to go to Omak or Osoyoos as I travel there and back twice daily.

Yes, commute in a carpool for the work week a 70+ mile commute per day. It really saves and all 3 of us are on time, that's the key. We have been carpooling for 2+ yrs now. It's also nice to have company in the car!

My wife was in a 5 passenger Community Transit car pool initially. But sporadic commuters, sit & wait for others, others withdrawing from the Van, & finally, a horrendous commute, killed it. Even two people commuting together, when one wasn't timely, is a major stress. Americans aren't punctual & find excuses to screw up other's schedules.

I have I the past where practical...
But now, self-employed at home, carpooling consists of giving The Real Mininana a piggyback ride to the kitchen...
