Link to 2010 Thread (

If you are trying to find a ride or if you have an empty seat and want company and/or help with costs, post in this thread.

Please include the following information -

Whether you have a vehicle or need a lift - If you need a lift, are you able to share the driving? (If you let someone else drive your car, there's nothing at all rude about asking to SEE their driver's license and if you'll be driving someone else's car, it's sensible to ask to see the insurance card.)
What area you're coming from (preferably at least the County)
When you usually leave and how long you generally stay - For example, if you drive all night and go directly to the prison or if you arrive Friday night and get a room.
Do you travel with children?
Are you a smoker or is it really important to you that your carpool pal NOT smoke?

Most other details should be exchanged via private message.

Here's an example:

Ride needed from Oakland Area.
Licensed driver.
Can share gas costs, and maybe a room?
Prefer to go on Friday and stay until after Sunday visiting.


I drive from Mendocino County 2 times a month.
Would like to share the driving and gas costs.
Sorry, I can't accommodate children.
I smoke and play the stereo loud.
Usually leave after lunch on Friday and head back right after Sunday Visits.

Please do not post comments or replies to posts in this thread.

JUST your Carpool Information.

My fiance is in Golden State in McFarland. I would possibly like to share a ride/gas costs and a room. I have a 3 yr old son but dont always bring him. Usually wake up xtra early on Saturday, drive up and visit, then get a room for the night and visit again on Sunday then head back home. I dont smoke but am willing to sacrifice a ride with a smoker if it means saving cash and if they are considerate and not too outta control.

Hey folks!

I go to Taft CCF about everyother weekend and would like to share the cost of gas.

I don't smoke, but will stop occasionally if you feel the need. My son may occasionally go.

I just found out my boyfriend is at this prison. I sent in my visiting application today so I will be visiting asap. If anyone needs a ride, I drive. I will have my 3 month old with me. I smoke, but obviously not in the car while my daughter is in there. PM me! :)

Is there anyone who travels from the Sacramento area to Taft to visit a loved one? If so, I would be interested meeting and possibly ride sharing. I visit the Taft Community Center with is contracted through CDCR. However, I'm open to traveling with someone who visits the federal facility, as long as it's a right fit for the two of us. I'm also open to someone who lives in Central Valley and I can pick up on the way to share the remainder of the way.

I'm not looking for drama!!! Just someone who is visiting a loved one just as I am. Someone who was thrown into the system due to the crime a loved one made. Someone who is respectful, considerate, and can afford their portion of the trip.

If you are interested in chatting and/or meeting up, you can send me a private message and/or respond to this post.

Hey all. Driving up to Golden State in September. My car is rough, but reliable. Room for kids and car seats. Good driver, insured, licensed. I dont want drama, so dont ask if you come with. No smoking at all. We go up Saturday from Long Beach at 7 am and I am leaving at one. I can pick up along the way. 710 to the 5, within reason. $20. You can pick the music, but give me a heads up in your reply what you like. Bring your CDs :)
