					            What is GO MAINE and how can I benefit
                    from carpooling to work…
      (and other intriguing questions looking for answers)?!

1. What is GO MAINE? GO MAINE is Maine’s statewide commuter service providing
   access to healthy, economical and eco-friendly options for commuting to and from
   work… besides simply driving alone. GO MAINE is funded by the Maine DOT and
   Maine Turnpike to help commuters like you!

2. Why carpool to work? Sharing the ride to work with a friend, co-worker or spouse
   can save you hundreds, even thousands of dollars each year. With the cost of gas at
   the pump around $4.00 a gallon, your commute is costing you a lot over the course
   of a year’s time. Never mind the wear and tear on you car. Carpool just one day a
   week and you could save a bundle over the course of a year. Carpool more often
   and the savings can really add up!

3. How do I start carpooling? Go to www.gomaine.org to register. Click on the “log
   on” icon to begin registration. You’ll need to enter a little information, like your
   home address, work address, work hours and the like. Then click “submit” and your
   commute option “buttons” will pop up. Click on “carpool match” and then contact
   the people on the match-list to start carpooling.

4. When do I get the Emergency Ride Home Guarantee?
   It’s our #1 benefit that allows for a free (or reimbursed) taxi ride
   or rental car home in the event of a workday emergency.
   Think of it as "commuter insurance"! Whether it’s for an
   illness, family crisis, unscheduled overtime, or other unforeseen
   workday emergency, a free (or reimbursed) taxi or rental car
   will get you home. Register your carpool to get the ERHG!

5. Where else can I get a money-saving deal like this? It’s fast, easy and free

   absolutely no obligation. How can you go wrong? You can’t! Plus, register today
