Ever wanted a car that gets 50 mpg?
If you share rides with one person instead of driving alone, the mpg for you personally doubles and the carbon footprint drops by half! If the two of you drive separately in cars that get 25 mpg, sharing suddenly changes your mpg per person to 50 mpg! If you already own a car that gets 50 mpg, sharing doubles it to 100 mpg!
Sharing rides creates and strengthens new friendships and builds a foundation of sharing with an automatic backup plan if your ride ever breaks down or needs service.
The Cedar Rapids Gazette ran a recent article about regional ride sharing plans to save money, reduce highway congestion and cut back on the wear and tear on our highway infrastructure.
