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.  Carpools are a great way to get to know your colleagues and neighbours while saving on gas.

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.
