Did you know you can find a carpool buddy in North Carolina? Share the Ride NC helps match commuters with a carpooling buddy (or two or three!) based on your commute locations, schedules, favorite radio stations, and other factors. This even includes bicycling or walking to work! We spoke with Paul Straw, the system administrator for Share the Ride NC about the options and how it works. He also shared information about a related and critical program, Emergency Ride Home, for carpoolers and transit users who get stuck without a ride.
