More and more people are carpooling today than ever before. I started carpooling because I needed to travel to work from the suburbs efficiently. The first time I started carpooling, I thought of the idea to share a seat in the car as bizzare. Now, I really enjoy it because I have met some awesome people.
Does anyone here at Rabble carpool? Whats the reason you carpool (environmental, cost, efficiency)?
