When I was first faced with the task of creating a frequently asked questions section for this webpage, I must admit to reveling in delusions of grandeur. These thoughts only lasted a second or two, but it was long enough to imagine a world filled with Riki Rules! tee-shirts and boundless fansites in my honor. Then I remembered the reason I was here: to keep you up-to-date on all the important transportation information available out there. That said, below is a list of questions that I'm most often asked and those that I think deserve reiteration.

Carpooling / Vanpooling
Why should I carpool if I have my own car?
costs of gas so high, carpooling is a great
way to reduce your automotive
costs. Not to mention, three passengers in your
car means three less vehicles
congesting the roads and causing you delay.
Think of all the time
and money you'll save while fighting pollution!
a vanpool is highly beneficial if you are traveling
from a distance
of fifteen miles or more each way and have enough
people to share the
cost. It's a fairly simple process which can
be made even simpler by
using Cross County Connection's free services.
First step - check with
your employer to see if a vanpool is already

of this deal by contacting
