If you have signed up for Drive Less DU or Mountain Pool during one of our events or at the Transportation Center office, you will have been signed up by one of our staff persons and you will receive follow-up emails with instructions on how to set up your account.
It is very important to join DU's Drive Less DU or Mountain Pool network to find carpool partners and partake in our incentive programs.
We've made it easy and fast to create trips to find carpool partners. You do not need to create a trip if you not not planning to carpool for your trip. Here are the steps you'll need to follow:
After creating a carpool trip in Ride Matcher, iCarpool defaults an assumed travel route (sort of like when you click for directions in Google and it makes a decision on the best path). If you use an alternative route, you can change it manually. Heres how:
Step 1: Click on the "Ride Matcher" tab
Step 2: Click on the "Manage your trips" sub-tab
Step 3: Click "View/Change Route"
Step 4: On the map, zoom in or out and right click to add "waypoints" or "stops" along the route you take. The map will make changes to your route based on the path you mark out and will then calculate the corret mileage.
Once you've completed a trip to the grocery store, mall, work, etc., you can log it on the interactive calendar so that you can get accurate reports on gas money saved, environmental impacts, and more. Here are the steps you'll need to follow:
If you are using the interactive calendar, the 3 step logging, iCarpool defaults an assumed travel route, and therefore an assumed mileage. If you use an alternative route which gives you a different mileage from the default, you can change the mileage manually. Heres how:
Step 2: Follow the steps
Step 3: On the left side below the modes, you will see the mileage and links to update it (see image below). Update the mileage and now click on the calendar cells to log trips
*Note that you cannot change your mileage for the 3-step interactive calendar trip you have just made after navigating away from the page. If you would like to make changes, you must click on the trip to delete it, and then start over from Step 1.
If you are using a Trip Log Template, iCarpool defaults an assumed travel route, and therefore an assumed mileage. If you use an alternative route which gives you a different mileage from the default, you can change the mileage manually. Heres how:
Step 1: Once you are logged in, click the “Trip Tracker” tab
Step 2: Click on the “Trip Log Templates” button at the top of the page
Step 3: Find which template you need to edit, and click on the edit button (looks like a hand writing on the piece of paper)
Step 4: Edit the “Distance (miles)” and “Return Distance (miles)” fields to the correct number of miles.
If you have already logged the trips and they are on the calendar, you cannot edit them, you must delete them and then add them in again. Please note that you can only add trips up to 30 days in the past.
