Commuting to work other than in your personal vehicle has a range of benefits, both to you and to your community.
Have More Money
By sharing the costs of commuting (gas, parking) with one or more, whether by carpooling or vanpooling, you can increase the amount of disposable income you can allocate to other activities, like leisure and travel.
You can also insulate you and your bottom line from fluctuations in gas prices. Fewer miles on your vehicle mean less wear and tear, too.
Each time you share a trip to work, you’re taking one car off the road that might otherwise add to already challenging congestion.
Health & Safety
Reducing trips minimizes auto-sourced pollution, and by carpooling or vanpooling, you can have a more enjoyable, social commute. If you opt to bike or walk to work, you get exercise while commuting, great for those looking to shed some pounds.
