“Free, Safe, Nonjudgmental Rides Home”

Who They Are: A student-run non-profit organization that gives the Bryan/College Station community free rides home every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night from 10pm to 3am during the Spring and Fall semesters at Texas A&M University.

Why We Chose Them: We’ve all had one too many before, CARPOOL helps keep the roads safe from drunk drivers.

How You Can Help: If you’re an A&M student you can become a volunteer. If not you can donate, become part of CARPOOL’s Endowment, or a sponsor.
