What is carpooling? It is the joint use of a vehicle by a driver and one or more passengers as part of a trip that the driver makes on his own account (at no charge, except for sharing costs). It allows drivers and passengers to make regular or one-off journeys.

Pooling vehicles on common routes has several advantages:

  • Reduce individual transportation costs by sharing fuel costs and/or highway tolls between driver and passengers.
  • Promote conviviality and strengthen social exchanges.
  • Limit the number of vehicles on the roads and make traffic flow more smoothly.
  • Contribute to the collective reduction in fuel consumption and participate in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

The territory of the Puy-en-Velay urban community has 13 official carpooling areas. Open 7 days a week and 7 hours a day, they are practical and secure spaces for carpoolers and passengers.
