The Commuter Connections initiative, held under the supervision of the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments, is launching an innovative new carpooling app that is designed to take the concept of ridesharing back to the old days, when people simply offered rides for free if they had a bit of extra room.

This real-time carpooling app is fully free of charge for both drivers and passengers, and is designed to make carpooling exceptionally convenient by embracing simplicity. Indeed the model of this app revolves around simply connecting people offering rides to people seeking them. What's more, the app also offers duration estimates, location information and routes.

While there are undoubtedly lots of disruptive transportation apps out there, the CarPoolNow app is unique in that it uses modern technology to promote old-school transportation philosophies.
