The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) provides this Carpool Matching Program for the voluntary participation of its employees. No screening of participants has occurred. Employees who participate in the voluntary program do so at their own risk, and are encouraged to verify driving credentials (including drivers' license and motor vehicle records) and automobile insurance coverage with their "matched" participants. Participation in the program is not to be construed as arising out of, or in the course of, employment with the Medical Center.
Note: UMMC does not arrange carpools. You alone determine whether and when it is appropriate to meet with or share personal information with a potential carpool partner. You are responsible for informing your insurance company that you will carry passengers, and making sure your car insurance adequately covers and protects you and your passengers. UMMC shall not be held responsible for any accidents or injuries, including but not limited to automobile accidents, arising from the use of this website.
