Commuting into Caledon

Smart Commute - Ride sharing and more...

COMING SOON (Fall 2021)

Smart Commute will be utilizing SmartTripsON  it's more than just a carpool matching forum – it is a true travel options portal where users can instantly find information on various options to get from A to B.

Included in your search results will not only be carpool partner matches, but options for vanpools, bike, walking and transit buddy matching.

In addition to being able to explore your travel options, you will also be able to log trips and receive rewards. SmartTripsON also offers users the ability to find one-off single trip carpool matches or a regular carpool partner.

SmartTripsON’s sophisticated matching will find passengers close to a driver’s origin, destination and drive route, according to schedule and personal preferences. Passengers looking to join a carpool will see results based on proximity to origin, destination, travel route and personal preferences. Match results are shown in both tabular and in mapped form, based on two sorting algorithms: distance to you, and best matching your commute preferences. Users also have the ability to filter matches based on driving preference, male/female preference, distance from origin, route, or destination, or organization.

Payment transfer for carpool trips is facilitated directly through the system using suggested government mileage rates.
