Cut your carbs going to work. Carbon emissions, that is. Buddy up for your daily commute. If not every day, then even a once a week, carpooling can make a sizable difference.
Consider this: If you share your ride with just one other coworker, you can cut the cost of commuting in half. Fill the car with four friends, and you'll pay just 25% of what you had paid to drive alone. Not to mention, you'll save on car maintenance because you'll cut down on wear and tear, and you'll extend the life of your car.
Beyond the cost savings, you'll help save the environment. If your drive to work is 25 miles each way and at least half is in stop-and-go traffic, you'll save almost 10% of your monthly emissions.
In many places, carpooling can save you even more time and money, because pairing up allows you to skip tolls on bridges, or opens up access to less-clogged high occupancy vehicle lanes.
