You really won’t know if carpooling is a good commuting solution for you until you try it.
However, you should go into a carpool with two things in mind. First, you need to be willing to
work out a schedule that is convenient for you and the others in the carpool. Second, you should
recognize that compromise might be required. For example, if everyone likes to listen to
different radio stations, the car radio might not be tuned to your favorite station every day.
