Car pooling

Drive 2 Work (D2W)

This Migrant Resource Centre program allows culturally and linguistically diverse clients to access car pooling arrangements. It allows people to access and maintain employment in regional areas outside the greater Launceston area. 

Cool Pool Tas

Cool Pool Tas is an internet service where passengers and drivers can connect to share or exchange rides in Tasmania.  This type of service is commonly referred to as online carpooling or ridesharing.
