That’s a Wrap on Carpool Week 2015!
Thank you to all of those who participated in this year’s Carpool Week Challenge. Carpool Week is an annual campaign led by Smart Commute to encourage people to carpool and celebrate how much commuters can save by driving to work, school or an event with at least one other person. Employees at Smart Commute workplaces can look forward to exclusive promotions leading up to Carpool Week.
Cars with two or more occupants are less likely to get stuck in traffic because they can use High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes. Plus –during the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games this summer, drivers will need to be accompanied by at least two passengers to use HOV lanes. Get your carpool team ready now so that you’re ready for the Games.. Find out more about the transportation changes during the Games here.
Did you know, the average cost of owning and operating a vehicle in Canada is $10,500 per year. Carpoolers can reduce their costs considerably by sharing the drive to work. Two people, sharing a 50km (return) commute five days a week will each save about $54 on gasoline alone in one month. Calculate your savings here.
