How can I start a carpool?

If you are interested in carpooling, check first around your neighborhood and your worksite. You may find someone who works and lives close by and works similar hours as you. If you can't find anyone this way, you can create your own profile at eRideShare.com and find carpool matches in central Louisiana area.
