Boonslick Regional Planning Commission is pleased to announce the MO RIDES Carpool Program. Visit MO RIDES website, www.morides.org/carpool. MO RIDES serves Franklin, Lincoln, Montgomery, St. Charles and Warren Counties.
To utilize the carpool service, a person will need to provide us with their information to be matched with other carpoolers. When MO RIDES finds a match with similar starting points and destinations, the rider/driver will be contacted for permission to be connected with the other potential carpooler(s). Register with MO RIDES for FREE carpool service by completing your carpool profile either online or by filling in our carpool form. You will then be included in a data base pending a match with another carpooler. You do not have to own a car to participate. We will strive to find non drivers rides with owner/drivers, as well as owner/drivers with owner/drivers.
If you do not have access to MO RIDES website, you may email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 636-359-4656 and a form will be provided for you to complete. You will also need to Mail a RECORD CHECK that you obtain from the Sheriff's Department in the county of your residence to Deana Tucker Dothage, MO RIDES, PO Box 429, Warrenton, MO 63383.
