At Commuter Connect, we are committed to helping all commuters find transportation alternatives that save money and protect our local environment. In September, we launched the Car Free Day Every Day campaign to promote all the ways commuters can go car-free or car-lite in Central Indiana.
We are excited to announce that we are continuing our Car Free Day Every Day campaign through October to celebrate National Ridesharing Month!
Ridesharing does not just include paid services like Uber and Lyft, but also carpooling and vanpooling. The Commuter Connect team helps residents across Central Indiana meet other commuters and set up carpools/vanpools.
Here are some benefits of ridesharing:
- It saves money. Instead of spending too much on gas for your own car, you can split the price of gas with the other people in your carpool/vanpool.
- It reduces traffic congestion. Carpooling/vanpooling lowers the number of cars on the road. With fewer cars, there’s less traffic congestion and you can get to work faster.
- It frees up your commute. You don’t always have to drive if you’re in a carpool. Take turns driving with your fellow commuters and use your downtime to answer some emails or catch up on the news!
- It protects our planet. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, just one typical passenger vehicle emits about 4.6 metric tons of carbon dioxide per year. By sharing your ride, you can reduce your carbon footprint and improve the air quality in Central Indiana.
Do you want to join in on the fun? National Ridesharing Month is a perfect time to sign up with Commuter Connect and learn about how transportation alternatives like carpooling could improve your commute.
