The Importance of Carpooling

Jul 24, 2008
Ever see people carpooling especially in the city? This is not a new phenomena but unfortunately not many people know the benefits of carpooling. I know a few people who are carpooling and today they manage to save what they can earn in a month. It is amazing and I wish there are more people who can realize the benefits of carpooling. Let me tell more about the benefits.

Be environmental friendly. It is all about the nature. People are getting concerned about the state of our mother nature, the Earth. By carpooling, we can help by reducing the cars, thus reducing the Carbon Dioxide being released into the air. Carbon Dioxide is also the main culprit in Green House Effect and causing Global Warming. The less Carbon Dioxide, the better it would be for our nature.

Save some dollars. Nowadays, even just a single dollar means so much to everyone. Money is so important that one simply can never live. With the fuel price rising without any signs of stopping, it is advisable to save for the rainy days and also the sunny days. By carpooling, you only need to pay a small amount for the fuel, as the total amount will be divided among the carpoolers.

Reduce the traffic jam. When there is less cars on the road, automatically it will reduce the traffic jam so you can have a smooth journey to work instead of being stuck in the traffic jam for hours. Can you imagine taking hours to reach your working place when it only takes a few minutes to reach there if there is no traffic jam.

Cut down the parking fees. There is one car and four carpoolers. The parking fee is only imposed per car so the fees can be divided into four parts so you get to save a small amount of money. Another great way to save, even just a little bit, but it makes all the difference. The best way is to pay monthly rather than daily. There must be some kind of monthly pass for workers in your office. Check it out.

Mingle with people. Talking is something we rarely do these days especially when we are so caught up in work and family. There is simply no time to socialize with friends so you can use the opportunity of carpooling to talk and discuss with friends that carpool together. It is also a great way to catch up with each other.
