Carpooling and ride sharing

Find out how you can do you bit for the environment by carpooling and ridesharing.


Carpooling is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car. It prevents the need for others to have to drive to a location themselves.

By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person's travel costs like fuel, parking, and travel costs, and the stress of driving. It's also a great way to make connections with people in your area.
