How does carpooling work?

A carpool is simple. It’s an arrangement between two or more people to make a regular journey in a single car, typically with each person taking turns to drive the others.  However, other carpools have just one driver who drives each commute. There are no hard and fast rules – it’s up to the individual circumstances of those in your carpool. A good rule of thumb is to discuss and agree upon the cost-sharing arrangements beforehand. Determine what the driving arrangements will be, if there is an equal split in driving responsibilities, and the cost-sharing arrangements.
