Climate Crisis Solution #42: Share Your Ride
FEEL A TWINGE OF GUILT EVERY TIME YOU DRIVE SOLO?
IT'S EASY TO GIVE YOUR CONSCIENCE AND THE PLANET A BREAK.
SHARE YOUR RIDE.
The average commuter burns 340 gallons of gas a year, creating a 3.4-ton cloud of CO2.
- Ride with one extra passenger and you've cut that figure in half.
- Find one more and you've cut it by two-thirds. About 10% of American workers carpool every week.
- 'Poolers can qualify for discounts of up to 20% on insurance -- not to mention drive in carpool lanes -- and your employer may offer sweet incentives like free parking, shortened workdays, salary bonuses, and even cash awards.
