The Western Upper Peninsula has sixteen park-and-ride lots owned by the Michigan Department of Transportation. These are available for public use at any time provided space is available. Members of a carpool party drive individually to a lot where it is convenient for everyone to meet, and the carpool then leaves for its destination. Upon return of the carpool, everyone drives him or herself home from the lot. It is a safe, convenient, and low-risk solution to some of the complexity of arranging a carpool.
