Learn More about Colorado's First Casual Carpool Program!

Post Date:02/13/2019 5:30 PM

Commuting Solutions, in partnership with Waze, the Denver Regional Council of Governments (DRCOG), the Regional Transportation District (RTD) and the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) is thrilled to announce the start of Colorado’s first Casual Carpool program, Casual Carpool on US 36!

Casual Carpool on US 36 allows commuters who would normally drive alone to cruise past traffic in the US 36 Express Lanes for free by helping to connect them with two riders headed in the same direction. Drivers can pick-up/drop-off riders at the following locations:

  • US 36 & Table Mesa Station

  • US 36 & Church Ranch Station

  • US 36 & Broomfield Station

  • Union Station in Denver

Union Station in Denver will serve as a drop-off point in Denver. However, there is no designated parking for drivers at Union Station. There are other parking lots nearby for drivers to use.

For the first three months of the program, Waze Carpool is offering a flat rate of $1 a ride for Casual Carpool on US 36 riders. Once the incentive is over, it will cost riders the federal reimbursement rate of $0.58 a mile. Drivers for the program will always receive the federal reimbursement rate for the mileage they drive.
