Car pooling


Carpooling with one or more person just a couple times a week can significantly cut the cost of commuting. Sharing a ride can reduce stress, prolong the life of your car, and reduce the amount of vehicles sitting in traffic. So, grab a co-worker and check out some of the carpooling options available to you right now.




Vanpooling is a convenient and cost-effective alternative to driving alone to work.  State employee vanpools get preferential parking at state offices in Nashville. Sign up on Team TN.  Vans hold up to 15 people with full insurance and maintenance to lessen your concerns.



Did you know that the average vanpool participant reports saving up to $3,000 or more a year on gas, car maintenance and wear and tear? Click here for more information about the benefits of ridesharing.
