Differently Abled Routes
- Determine route, schedule and pickup locations. Decide on driving responsibilities, such as alternating on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
- Establish policies/restrictions on smoking, music/volume, food or drinks.
- Communicate with your fellow carpoolers. If you’re 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.
- Be punctual. Decide how long the driver is expected to wait.
- Drive safely at all times. There should be no excuse for excessive speed, use of alcohol, or reckless maneuvers.
- Keep your vehicle clean and in good condition.
- Establish a method for reimbursing driving expenses.
- Make a habit of being late.
- Ask your carpoolers 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 carpoolers well. While some people enjoy debating the issues, others may prefer a quieter commute.
- Have lengthy cell phone conversations while you’re in the carpool.
- Be a “backseat driver.” Most of the time, these distractions can cause an accident rather then prevent one.
