Reduce Your Stress
Let's face it, not everyone is able to bike or take the bus. In some cases, driving is a must. Fortunately, there are also several carpool and vanpool options available. Help save money and the environment by riding with others on your commute.
Ride sharing can cut your commuting costs, minimize wear and tear on your car, and make for a less stressful commute. Ride sharing also helps reduce traffic and parking congestion and promotes cleaner air by reducing car emissions.
According to surveys, most workers believe their commute is the most stressful part of their workday. It's no wonder when the average commuter spends eight hours each week behind the wheel of a car, the equivalent of working one extra day per week.
In contrast, van / carpool riders can relax, read the newspaper, work on their laptop, or just take a nap. There are fewer worries about traffic, vehicle reliability, or getting to work on time. And "pool" riders travel with the satisfaction that they are doing their part to reduce traffic congestion and air pollution.
