To ensure that all carpoolers arrive at their destination safely, we ask you to follow these recommendations: 

  • Wear a mask and respect social distancing guidelines
  • Do not shake hands with anyone and wash your hands before and after the journey
  • Ventilate the vehicle regularly during your ride
