Carpooling... Say what?
In case you never participated in a school carpool growing up, a carpool consists of two or more people sharing a ride to work (karaoke optional but recommended). Carpools can be as flexible as needed. Share the ride every day or once a week. It is up to you.

One more time for the people in the backseat!
The numbers above are based on 15,000 miles of driving annually. With one more person in your vehicle, your commute costs can be cut in half. IN HALF! Add a third person, and now you ‘re only paying 1/3 of your driving dollar.

It’s math time! Let’s say Suzy drives to work five times a week and travels 10 miles per round trip. Suzy could save $783 a year by carpooling with one other person and over $1000 a year by carpooling with two other people. That’s a lot of grande mochachinos!
