Carpooling with Scoop
Special Pricing for Eligible Commuters with Flexible Carpooling App
Rides starting as low as $1 and drivers are reimbursed up to $12 per trip!
Use the Scoop carpooling app to find your match among more than 100,000 commuters already using Scoop to carpool in the Bay Area. Save time, money, and meet co-workers and neighbors, all while helping the environment. Scoop’s app, which is open to the public, makes it easy and flexible to carpool without committing to an ongoing carpool.
Enjoy flexible, as-needed carpooling.
Schedule morning and afternoon trips separately. Enjoy the flexibility to come and go whenever it works for you.
Arrange to carpool the day before or day of your trip. Schedule your morning trip by 9 p.m. the night before. Schedule your afternoon or evening trip by 3:30 p.m. the day of your trip.
Schedule your commute up to a week in advance. Choose to drive or ride and the time you would like to depart.
Use Scoop once a week or every day at the times that work for you.
Use Scoop’s Guaranteed Ride Home program. If you Scooped into work as a rider, and if Scoop is unable to fulfill your ride back, Scoop will reimburse the cost of your trip home up to a maximum of $50 per month. You are eligible for a Guaranteed Ride Home if you meet Scoop’s program criteria.
Share costs through the app. Carpoolers split the cost of the commute. Ride for as low as $1, driver reimbursements as high as $12!

Distinguishing between P&TS and Scoop's "Carpool Credit"
Stanford's carpool program offers P&TS Carpool Credit as a reimbursement for your carpool permit. The cost of the 'A' or 'C' permit is shared equally among all members of the carpool, with each member paying his or her share of the cost of the permit (current permit rates). At the end of each academic quarter, each member receives P&TS Carpool Credit for each month of carpool eligibility in that quarter to reimburse them for the cost of their permit.
Scoop users can earn Scoop Carpool Credits, which they can then apply to their subsequent Scoop trips. Riders receiving a Scoop Credit will give you a free trip on their next ride. Drivers can use Scoop credits as a bonus payout on their next drive.
