Setting up Car Pooling arrangements

Contact other parents to arrange car pooling via our car sharing map online application.

Sharing the burden of driving with another family can be helpful to both you and the environment! When organising a car pooling arrangement, please pay special attention to the following:

Car seats – do you have the right number, and are they adequate?

Payment – when any regular payment is involved, a transportation ‘line’ is created, subject to administrative authorisation by the Regierungspräsidium Darmstadt. (As long as the car pooling is done in private cars (PKW, as opposed to Minibus), there are only up to six people including the driver in the car and no fees are being paid to one another, no official registration is required. In accordance with Freistellungsverordnung § 1, Ziffer3.)
