Welcome to Carpool SA Yankalilla

The District Council of Yankalilla has partnered with the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure to provide Carpool SA Yankalilla to our community.

Anyone aged over 18 in the Yankalilla community can join Carpool SA Yankalilla and share their journeys, whether that is to work, study or to events like weekend sport.

It’s free, it takes minutes to sign on and from there you can search for other program members to link up with. All of your personal information is protected.

Plus, we verify the membership of every person who joins the program with the workplace, club or organisation that they are linked to, or through council. Read below for more information.

Why carpool? Well, why not? If you are making a similar journey to someone else – similar origin point, similar destination, similar times of day – then it makes sense to share the ride.  Carpooling can help you to:

  • save money by splitting the costs of your journey
  • reduce the wear and tear on your car and your carbon footprint 
  • enjoy being a passenger from time to time - if you share the driving with your carpool partner(s), you can be a passenger instead of always being stuck behind the wheel. 

Carpooling also has benefits for our community:

  • it can reduce the amount of traffic on the road 
  • it can reduce parking pressures at your destination point, and
  • it can provide transport options to people who are unable to travel independently. 

We are encouraging local clubs, organisations and workplaces to join the program to enable their members and employees to share the ride. Contact Claire Ellis at Council for information on how your organisation can join Carpool SA Yankalilla.
