5 Reasons to Ditch Some of Your Drive-Alone Trips

  1. Great Exercise: Why not start your day by walking or biking to work? The fresh air will be a great way to wake up for all those morning meetings. If you live too far to only bike or walk, trying pairing them with transit!
  2. Meet New People: Driving alone sure does get boring, doesn’t it? Set up a Ridematch to find a carpool buddy or join an existing vanpool and find a new friend and a new commute.
  3. Save Money: Don’t you just hate taking your car in for an oil change and ending up with more problems than you thought? Save tons of money and maintenance on your car by opting for a better way to get around.
  4. Better Use of Your Time: Your car may (sometimes) be a quicker mode of travel, but it’s very dangerous to sleep, check emails, text or catch up on your favorite shows with two hands on the wheel at all times. The good news is that in a carpool, vanpool or on the bus, you can do all of those things, free of danger.
  5. Help the Environment: Automotive fluids contribute to stormwater runoff which flows into our waterways. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve water quality by taking a Salmon Friendly Trip!
