Carpooling can save you money and frustration on your commute to and from work. The Merrimack Valley TMA can help you find a carpooling partner based on the area in which you live. If you are interested in forming or joining a carpool, please contact our Outreach Manager, Al Marrone.

Once you begin carpooling, you will automatically become eligible for our Green to Work and Guaranteed Ride Home programs.

Would you like to take your commute a step further and participate in a vanpool? A vanpool consists of 9-14 people who meet at a convenient location each morning and ride into work together. They agree to leave at the same time each evening and ride home together as well. The vans are insured and are available for limited personal use. There are many vanpools in place across the Commonwealth (many originate in New Hampshire for the MVTMA commuters who cross state lines every day).
