What is Slugging?

Slugging is a unique form of carpooling, often referred to as "Casual Carpooling". Sluglines assists drivers by reaching the two or three person HOV requirement, and passengers in getting a free ride to their destination.


The driver pulls into one of the many known locations for Sluglines, where riders line up.


Driver holds up a sign or rolls down the window to call out his/her destination.


Riders first in line heading to the driver’s location proceed into the car and off they go!
