Drive less, live more

According to the Canadian Automobile Association, the average cost of owning and operating a car is over $9,000 a year. Sharing a ride can help offset these costs.

Sharing a ride even once a week can help ease the stress of commuting and save you more than 10% of your commuting costs.

It’s also an efficient and sustainable way to help reduce road congestion and CO2 emissions.

I’m Heading that Way

Sharing a ride is as simple as talking to your friends and family, work colleagues and classmates, and social networks.

Coordinate rides with:

  • Parents with children participating in the same sports teams or group activities or attending the same school;
  • Neighbours to shorten the workday commute by driving to park and ride lots at transit and LRT stations;
  • Family and neighbours for trips to the grocery store, mall, farmers’ market, or festivals;
  • Teammates to share a ride to games and save parking hassle;
  • Friends for a night out to dinner, a show, concert, festival or sports event; or
  • Colleagues to get to and from work once a week or more.

Use this checklists after you have found someone to share a ride with. Discuss the following items with your ride-share partner(s).
