Car pooling is when company employees share car journeys by getting together with another colleague who goes the same route and splitting the bill at the petrol pump with some even choosing to share the car with the other person.
Not only will car pooling help to save the planet, but say you work in Soho then it could help you to make big savings. What better reason to sign up to a car pooling initiative?
If you still not convinced then here are some more benefits.
1) Some authorities and governments can offer incentives to car poolers. You might be able to source a private vehicle to drive to your offices with fellow colleagues and ease up the demand on Soho transport from commuters. You might not share a trip all the way to Soho as if you collect someone part-way to the office which means for some people it will hardly be any extra effort. As a result, with Soho car pooling everybody benefits.
2) Other means of giving car pooling a whirl include browsing specially dedicated Soho car pooling websites which is free to use and could turn out a match instantly without waiting for Soho newspaper adverts to be processed. If the people you work with are eager to try car pooling it could be of help to talk to your managers who might be able to supply funding or incentives thus making it easy to get your car pooling idea off the ground.
3) When starting out your car share you'll want to decide how you're actually going to get to work and which route to Soho you will need to take to pick up your passenger so that you don't overshoot your drive and miss the point. After all, the aim is to cut back on how much fuel you use so be sure to choose the shortest Soho route available and figure out the journey before you leave for your trip confirming with your passenger where the pickup point is.
4) When our company decided to move to an office in Soho that was found on senior management decided it was time to encourage car sharing across the whole workforce of car pooling to make the new commute to work all the easier.
