In Calais we set up a Facebook page for carpooling. Its only visable to Calais residents who have asked to be a part of it. When someone needs a ride they put the word out to see if anyone can help, or if they can give a ride to another.
So far we are very successful in carpooling to:
Montpelier for shopping at the CoOp
Carpooling & walking to Sunday night meditation.
I even paddle my canoe to meditation sometimes.
Carpooling to our Transportation Committee meetings.
Walking to the post office and general stores.
Walking to visit neighbors.
I had a friend drive my books to the book exchange at the CoOp on Earth Day.
Another friend was collecting shoes for people who need them - there was a central drop off point with a giant box for everyone's shoes.
I work from home most of the time, so there is no travel needed.
