Casual Carpool

Dodge rush hour traffic and make new friends.

Casual carpooling is a convenient and engaging way to commute in the Bay Area.

On weekday mornings, people meet as either drivers or passengers at designated locations in the East Bay and travel to downtown San Francisco. Casual carpooling allows cars with three or more people going westbound on the Bay Bridge in the morning to take advantage of the high occupancy vehicle lanes, save time at the toll plaza and get the double bonus of a reduced bridge toll.

There are more than 20 casual carpool pick-up locations. Visit for a full list of pick-up locations and additional information such as safety precautions, who gets to pick the radio station, and whether carpool passengers contribute toward the toll.

Now you can take bikeshare to many casual carpool pick-up locations. Over half the casual carpool pick up locations have Bay Wheels stations nearby.
