Want to Meet New People and Save Money? Carpool!
An alternative mode of transportation to campus is being offered through the transportation services department: a carpool program, with up to 5 people sharing a ride to work.
Carpooling is an easy way to lower your daily transportation expenses; it also helps to decrease the amount of pollution caused by automobile exhaust. Students or faculty members can register to carpool and find out who else is departing from convenient locations around campus. After registration on the web, participants can choose their fellow carpoolers based on the information provide on the website. The forms you fill out also assure the credibility of both driver and riders.
Carpooling is not only beneficial for those students who do not have cars, but for car owners as well. Carpooling is cheaper, especially for drivers, since expenses for fuel are shared and the drivers can take turns driving. It is also convenient because everyone can be picked up near the location they desire. Information and registration forms are provided at http://xena.bilkent.edu.tr/~carpool
