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).
