Jayride, one of New Zealand’s fastest growing car pooling initiatives has just announced it has teamed up with the Dunedin City Council to promote carpooling for the city, starting with Otago Polytechnic and Otago University.
This is a fantastic start to what we hope is a growing trend amongst city councils nationwide and even better, worldwide.
Carpooling, for those of you who aren’t up with the play, is a way to get from A to B fast and hassle free. At the same time you are also doing your bit to save the environment by lowering the number of vehicles on our roads.
Jayride lists all sorts of vehicles such as Transfercar’s free to drive rental vehicles which relocate between major cities nationwide, busses and private vehicles that need to get from A to B and want to share the cost of the journey.
What are the benefits:
- Less cars on the road (goes without saying why this is a benefit)
- Shared petrol costs
- Great company
- Faster (as you get to use the carpooling lanes)
So spread the word people, this is the new way to get around!
