Carpooling commonly known as car-sharing or ride-sharing is a concept in which commuters share a car while travelling. Participants in carpooling share journey expenses such as fuel, tolls etc. which reduces the expenses incurred on each participant. Carpooling helps to cut down traffic on the roads, carbon emissions and overall parking space required, hence proving to be environmental friendly. The application discussed in this paper is a mobile client using J2ME which allows it to work on any java enabled phone having GPRS connection. Thus, Car pooling using GPS is a real time mobile based application that mainly aims at facilitating car pooling amongst travelers.
