Try Carpooling


Find one or more carpool partners for a daily commute, and take turns driving. If you think it's a hassle to pick up and drop off other people, consider that there will be days when someone else is driving and you can just sit back, relax, and chat—or snooze! There's less wear and tear on you and your car, and less fuel used overall.

To find a partner, post a notice at your place of work. If you get no response, try posting a notice at other businesses nearby, or at your local supermarket.
