That’s right. Drivers wanted. A surprising thing for a transit-focused blog to say. An even more strange comment following a month of blog posts, Tweets, and events rallying around Biking.
But it’s true. We want drivers.
Even though we want you to walk, bike, and hop on a bus for your commute whenever and wherever you can, Share the Ride NC is the exception to this rule. In case you aren’t familiar, Share the Ride is a program focusing on helping people in the community find others to carpool with.
You can save money on gas, wear and tear on your vehicle, and sometimes insurance cost.
Carpooling not only saves you, but also helps reduce road congestion and lowers environmental impacts.
But we like to keep it social here at GoSmart. What really struck us was the fact that, on average, people spend 434 hours in the car. In other words, 18 DAYS a year spent in the car. Don’t you think that time would be better spent with a friend?
We sure think so. And we want to help you find one.
Go to our site and get paired with riders to start your new life as a Share the Ride driver. We can’t wait for you to join us!
If you have any questions or concerns just leave us a comment. We’d love to chat with you about the opportunities that await you behind the wheel.
