Ridesharing

If you could name two things you do not have enough of, you would probably say - money and time.

Ridesharing can save you both money and time!

Ridesharing, also known as carpooling (2-5 passengers) or vanpooling (5-15 passengers), is sharing rides with other commuters. Pooling is one of the most cost effective and energy-efficient forms of transportation available for commuters. Ridesharing is flexible and can be organized with your needs in mind. Poolers can meet at designated pick-up points or arrange for door-to-door service.

The cost of participating in a pool depends on several factors including commute distance, the number of riders, type of van and what type of subsidies are available. Ridesharing reduces the number of cars on the road and, at the same time, makes for lighter rush hour traffic. You can also get preferred and/or reduced parking, get auto insurance discounts, and save wear and tear on your car. Most importantly, instead of driving alone, you can relax, read a book, or catch up on personal or business matters while riding in a pool.

Commuting is costly. Sharing the ride with just one other person can cut your commuting costs in half. It's like paying yourself to enjoy a more relaxed drive into work. Aside from the cost of gas, you must also figure in the added cost for maintenance, insurance, registration, sales tax, depreciation and finance charges.

Sharing your ride to work - in a carpool, vanpool, bus, train, shuttles or a combination of these - is called ridesharing. Commuting just 15 miles each way can cost as much as € 1,764 per year. Sharing the ride with just one other person can cut your commuting costs in half.
