Post a comment on Meetup after you RSVP, or feel free to contact us and ask that we post a "seeking a carpool" message on our forums/lists/networks.

Try the Carticipate iPhone app or other carpooling/ridesharing apps. Stefan Frost, CEO of Carticipate, spoke about localizing Carticipate at the October 2009 IMUG meeting.
