"Carpooling"

Two or more people making arrangements to travel together in one car


USER-FRIENDLY DESIGN

Implementation

- Drivers and passengers register their contact details and journey requirements on the site or app.
- The software automatically puts passengers and drivers with matching requirements in touch to discuss possible journey sharing arrangements.
- If agreed, they meet up en route and complete one or more journeys together.

Members of the community can opt for an initial "Test Drive" to try the service before signing up.


Take a Test Drive!

How Does It Work?

· The carpoolers from your community register on your free website
· They select their journey and search for others going in the same direction
(both drivers and passengers, or passengers with a licence)
· They meet up on route or at selected locations


Benefits for the Carpoolers

A commuter carpooling just one or two days a week can make all the difference:
· Saves money
· Reduces wear and tear on the car and you
· Helps reduce carbon gas emissions
· Makes roads safer by fewer cars
· Might end up doing new friends and connections



"It is a practical way of sharing transport costs and reducing road congestion and vehicle pollution."

Did you know?


An average person spends 40 hours each year stuck in traffic.

The average carpooler can cut out as much as $600 each month on the cost of their commuting drive.

By carpooling twice a week, 1,600 pounds of greenhouse gases can be kept out of the air each year.

If 100 people were to take advantage of the carpool option every day, more than of 1,320 pounds of carbon monoxide and 2,376,000 pounds of carbon dioxide could be removed from the air.

About 18% of a person’s monthly budget it taken up in car maintenance, repairs, and gas.

Carpooling means fewer cars on the road each day which means less oil usage, and this can help reduce the nation’s dependency on foreign oil.

If everyone opted to carpool just one day a week, the traffic on the nation’s major highways and roads would be reduced by as much as 20%.
