Finding someone to share a ride with, at least in France or Switzerland, is now easier than ever thanks to Green Monkeys. Green Monkeys is a new website that makes it simple to find people in your area looking to carpool to work.

Green Monkeys matches prospective carpoolers using their "plan a ride" tool. Users enter their start and end point, planned time of arrival and departure and a few other preferences. All of this information is used by Green Monkeys to help the user find a person in their area with a similar route. Pricing is fixed and carpoolers can set up the details of their trip using the site's chat function. Green Monkeys does its best to ensure that all rides show up, but if one side welches, the site provides a taxi for the left-behind party.

This website would be great in the U.S. if you have ever notice how empty the carpool lane is in the early morning!
