Carpooling not only reduces traffic congestion and vehicle emissions, but regular carpooling will help you save money.
In 2009, the CarpoolZone.ca helped commuters save $425,000 and prevent 200 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions every month.A typical carpool group can save over $100 each even if they just carpool twice a week! Carpooling also sparks new and lasting friendships and alleviates the stress of driving alone every day.
It is estimated that the average annual cost to operate a personal vehicle is somewhere between $7,000 and $10,000. Carpooling allows you to share that expense, leaving you with cash for other things. How much is your seat worth?
Carpooling can also reduce your total commuting time. Imagine whizzing by traffic congestion in a designated carpool lane or parking in a spot close to the entrance of your workplace that has been designated for carpools only.
