Car pooling is the process of sharing an employee's car by going in pairs with another colleague who travels the same way to work 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 London then it could save you a lot of money too. So why not start your car pooling today?
Not convinced? Well here is a list of benefits, thanks.
1) See whether your local council or government runs car pooling initiatives. You might be able to source a private vehicle to commute to and from work with a colleague and take pressure off the London bus system. You may not have a fellow passenger for the whole trip to London as if you don't have to pick your car pooler friend up until part-way through which means for some people it will hardly be any extra effort. This makes car pooling to your London office a no-lose situation!
2) Other ways to get involved with car pooling include advertising for London commuters on the internet which is cost-effective and could find you someone quickly without the trouble of submitting newspaper adverts in the London paper. If the people you work with are eager to try car pooling it may be of use to chat to your management staff who might wish to add cash bonuses for staff wishing to share thus making it easy to get your car pooling idea off the ground.
3) Firstly, to get your car share started you'll have to figure out which way you're going to take to get to work and which route to London is best in order to collect your passenger so you don't end up driving far more than you usually would.
