What is WeGoMil?
WeGoMil is a new concept in carpooling where commuters offer their unused seats to riders in real-time through a web application or “Web App” which can be accessed on most desktop and mobile devices. Participants can use WeGoMil as part of their existing carpool or use the system to connect with your community and create a new carpool. Based on the distance traveled, the automated payment system allows sharing commuting costs to easy and efficient. The system is flexible and designed around your schedule, you can depart as early or as late as you desire, use the system daily taking advantage of the HOV lanes, or skip a day or two and be the driver one day or the rider the next.
The program’s goal is to bring real-time ridesharing to DoD employees and contractors who were directly impacted by the re-locations from the base re-alignment and closure (BRAC), who traveling along the I-95/395/495 and Route One Corridors. The program serves these seven BRAC sites: Defense Health Headquarters (DHHQ), Fort Belvoir, National Geospatial Agency (NGA) or Fort Belvoir North, the Mark Center, Marine Corps Base Quantico, the Navy Yard, and Arlington Hall.

WeGoMil is currently available to employees
at the following locations.
We have been using WeGoMil now for close to a month and I find that it allows us to map our location to a from our destination and we can find other active users in a radius around us who may also need a ride. Another neat function is the ability to rate the trip with one or five stars, this in turn will let others know the history of the driver so that they can select a safe driver!! I feel the system will truly cut down on traffic due to more people carpooling. This will also help keep the Earth Green as we move to the future in protecting our planet. Another unique function we like is the ability to be paid for driving and the ability to cash out if needed. Money is always a good incentive for everyone!!!”
When I’m asked about realtime ride share, I usually say, It’s the newest and most equitable way to carpool.”
WeGoMil is a genius idea and the software is revolutionary for addressing my commuting needs into Fort Belvoir. The app is nicely put together and looks great on the screen as well.”
I heard about WeGoMil from an article featured in the Washington Post and went on line to learn more. I previously slugged from Woodbridge to Walter Reed Hospital and have since been BRACed to Fort Belvoir at the new Community Hospital. The WeGoMil App is a genius idea and the software is revolutionary for addressing my commuting needs into Fort Belvoir. The app is nicely put together and looks great on the screen as well. My main driver for carpooling is the expense and time savings by using HOV-3. It’s easy to get two people to access HOV-3, and so the app will be great at finding that third person. An added benefit is knowing that you are traveling with a co-worker also adds a sense of safety and security.”
WeGoMil matching provided the best commute day of my life – 25 minutes to get to work.”
Two riders a day, has taken the commuting stress away.”
We were at work in less than 30 minutes and the same for going home by using HOV-3.”
