Carpool Week 2019

Carpool Week 2019

This year, Carpool Week is February 4-10, 2019. 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 over 330 Smart Commute workplaces can look forward to exclusive promotions leading up to Carpool Week.

Why carpool?

Cars with two or more occupants are less likely to get stuck in traffic because they can use High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes.

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.
