Sustainability is a top priority. The firm is committed to improving the world where we work, live and play. Initiatives such as the Smart Commute shuttle support public transit and are one of the ways action is taken on climate change.
It is estimated that the average annual cost to own and operate a personal vehicle is somewhere between $7,000 and $10,000. Carpooling allows you to share that expense, leaving you with cash for other things.
Smart Commute’s ride matching website, Carpool Zone, can help you find a carpool partner! Carpool Zone is free, easy and non-commital. Register on the Morrison Hershfield Carpool Zone and enter a starting address, along with your weekly schedule and travel preferences. View potential matches and send invitations through the website. After agreeing to share a ride, your carpool will be formed and you can start enjoying the benefits of smart commuting. Best of all, Carpool Zone rewards users for their eco-friendly efforts and tracks greenhouse gases and money saved by carpooling.
