Carpooling Benefits | Car TipsNov 12nd, 2013
While many people think carpooling is just for environmentally-friendly people, there are in fact carpooling benefits for everyone. Look below to see how carpooling cannot only benefit the planet, but help you out as well.
Not only does carpooling reduce the amount of gas consumed within your own vehicle, but you can also save a lot of money by splitting the cost of fuel between poolers. The amount you’ll save each month will surprise you and the extra cash may be enough for you to go on a trip or do something special at the end of the year.
Carpooling can also improve your mental health. Driving can be a very stressful task, especially if you’re stuck in traffic. If you’re only driving a third or a quarter of the time, you’ve lessened the amount of stress by a significant amount. Also, if you travel in the carpool lane you should be able to get to and from work quicker.
Finally, carpooling also helps the environment. Greenhouses gases are believed to be the cause of global warming so by doing your part to reduce the amount of emissions you can make the planet a healthier place.
