From February 5 to 11, Smart Commute Hamilton is challenging commuters to team up and carpool to work.
Carpooling not only reduces traffic congestion and vehicle emissions, but regular carpooling saves money. A typical carpool group can save over $100 each even if they just carpool twice a week! Carpooling also sparks new and lasting friendships and alleviates the stress of driving alone every day. It is estimated that the average annual cost to operate a personal vehicle is somewhere between $7,000 and $10,000. Carpooling allows you to share that expense, leaving you with cash for other things. How can I start carpooling?
It’s simple! Register on the Smart Commute tool at www.smartcommute.ca/carpool and create your profile.
Customize your profile by adding your home address and destination and decide how flexible you are in distance, driving times, and other preferences.
Once matched up, make sure you log your trips for a chance to WIN a $500 VIA Rail gift card, or a $50 gas card.Post a selfie for your chance to win a $50 VISA gift card
