Carpooling / Ride sharing etiquette –

Of course! Every carpool is unique, but good etiquette is always essential to keep it running smoothly. Good etiquette takes into account communication, courtesy and the safety of everyone in the carpool. See this list of do’s and don’ts for shareurride users.


    • Communicate with your fellow car-poolers. If you are running a few minutes late, call them and let them know. If you can’t carpool on a particular day due to a schedule conflict, give your carpool partners ample notice so they can make other arrangements.
    • Respect any other restrictions the carpool has agreed on, such as smoking, eating or drinking.
    • Keep your vehicle clean and in good condition.
    • Follow traffic rules & drive safely all times.
    • Make a habit of being late.
    • Have lengthy cell phone conversations while you’re in the carpool.
    • Ask your car-poolers to make extra stops along the way so you can take care of personal errands. The carpool is meant to help everyone with their commutes, period.
    • Bring up controversial topics like religion or politics unless you know your fellow car-poolers well.
