The Automobile Association reports the average yearly cost to operate a car can be as
much as 146000 year, or nearly 400 per day! Carpooling can help you offset these costs.
The more people you share your commute with, the more you can expect to save.
The congestion and volume of traffic on the roads are a major source of stress for many
drivers. Studies show that those who commute by means other than a single-occupancy
vehicle demonstrate lower levels of stress, higher morale, and lower blood pressure.
The environment is everyone’s business. Using fewer cars means less pollution,
conservation of habitat, and less demand for new roads and parking lots. Using fewer
cars also means less production of greenhouse gases, a major contributor to climate
change. Carpool regularly and you can feel proud that you’re helping the environment.
