Sharing a Ride

Want to find better options for commuting? Formerly known as RideArrangers, Way to Go has been promoting better commuting options for employers and individuals for more than 30 years.

Way to Go


6,700 staff and students drive alone to CU Boulder's campus on an average day.

Student and staff numbers are increasing long term, while the percent of parking is not.  That reality, in combination with the University's environmental commitment to reduce greenhouse gas by 50% by 2030, will require a significant number of drivers to make the commitment to switch to a more sustainable form of transportation. To help you do that, we facilitate vanpool, carpool and car/bike sharing services to make it easier and more beneficial for you to share a ride. 

The benefits of sharing a ride:

  • Saves you money - Splitting costs helps you save on gas, parking and maintenance (check with your insurance company to see if they offer carpooler reduced auto insurance rates).
  • Improves air quality  - Fewer cars on the roads means less exhaust and congestion.  Even the most efficient electric vehicle still increases congestion, which increases energy and fossil fuel usage.
  • Reduces Stress - Riding with others, having access to HOV lanes, and sharing driving duties reduces the stress of your commute.
  • Qualifies for parking perks - CU Boulder carpool permits provide priority parking in certain lots at select times and vanpools park free. 

Get involved, even if it's not every day. There are colleagues in your area that may have a similar schedule and we have the tools find them and make it happen.
