Let Someone Else Do the Driving

Check out these UNC vanpools to see if one matches your commute. Vanpool riders get to sleep, read, or just sit back and relax during their commute. Compare that to driving alone every day. Try it once, and you’ll never want to leave!


Free Ride-Matching

At UNC, you have two options to find carpools. Sign up at or log in with your Onyen at Both websites are free and secure with your personal information. You have the option to only match to UNC affiliates or to match with others, but we always recommend meeting first in a public space (like a coffee shop) before starting the carpool. This also gives you a chance to get to know one another and decide if you want to carpool together. There are no obligations, but think of all the money you’ll save if it works out!
