Carpool/Car Share/Car Care


Carpooling is a great way to save money, make your automobile last longer, relieve daily driving stress, and do something good for the environment.

It’s flexible too, so you can carpool when it’s convenient for your schedule. Just ask the commuters in the hundreds of registered carpools that are operating all over Maine!

Carpooling Information & Resources:

  • Find a carpool or start your own.  GOMaine makes it easy to do. 

  • Find a vanpool travels to the town you commute to through GOMaine’s services.

  • Worried about missing your ride home if you carpool?  Don’t.  With GOMaine’s Emergency Ride Home Guarantee you’ll be able to respond to any other unforeseen daytime emergency with a free (or reimbursed) ride home.
