King County Metro and the City of Redmond are partnering with iCarpool, to help Redmond commuters in Southeast Redmond and on Willows Road join the growing community of forward-thinking people sharing the ride.

How It Works

Riders meet Drivers on-the-fly!

  • Carpool in Real-Time: Up to an hour before leaving, drivers post their trip on the app.  Riders searching for a trip along the same route or to the same destination will be matched with the driver.
  • Security Features: Once both rider and driver accept the match, the rider receives a digital boarding pass to show to the driver at the agreed-on pick-up point.
  • Simple Cost Sharing: Drivers and riders going to SE Redmond or Willows Road share the cost of the trip via an automated in-app payment system. Riders pay $0.26 per mile (a minimum set fee of $1.50 for the first 5 miles). Drivers are reimbursed $0.17 per mile.
