If you are new to carpooling, there has never been a better time to give it a try.
Based on AAA estimates, the average carpooler who shares a ride with one other person saves $2,340 per year. That figure only increases with each additional person sharing a ride.
By carpooling just a few days per week to work or school, you can
- Save on gas and parking
- Reduce the stress of driving in congestion
- Save on the wear and tear of your car
- Help improve air quality by getting more cars off the road
Getting started is easy. If you don’t already know a relative, friend or coworker headed your way, check out Metro Transit’s regional database of people looking to share a ride. Just create a commuter account to get started.
This handy video will walk you through the steps of creating an account.
