Ever been pressed between to sweaty guys on a Green Line train after a Nats game because you didn’t want to pony up $20 for parking? Well, Commuter Connections may have a solution. The carpooling agency has extending its services beyond the work week.  Now, instead of just coordinating rides to and from work, Commuter Connections offers ride matching to major events like concerts, games, and parades.  Ideally, this will reduce congestion and improve the overall air quality of our city.  With 30,000 commuters already participating in the 9-5 program, events are a welcome addition to Commuter Connections’ services.

Kirk is a Maine-born, military brat who moved no fewer than 12 times during his childhood. He came to the DC area in 2004 for his undergrad and decided that it was the place for him. Since graduating, he’s nabbed a job with the Fed and spends most of his free time hunting for cheap thrills in the city. Find out why he loves DC.

  1. This will be amazing if it actually works; I just wonder if the demand will pan out – most of the people who work in DC but live in the outlying suburbs are kind of reluctant to travel back into the city on a day they don’t have to.

    But I hope this works out.
