Carpooling does wonders for the environment
Millions of people travel the same route every day, all of them driving alone in their own cars causing traffic jams and adding to the air and noise pollution. If all these people could find a platform to connect with each other, plan their route and make the trip together, it would significantly impact the traffic situation, the parking problems as well as reduce the burden on the environment.
GreenCar seeks to be exactly that – a safe platform for carpoolers – with the aim to reduce CO2 emissions.
Carpooling’s great for the economy
One-person-per-car travelling doesn’t just damage the environment, it also comes with a big price tag.
Think of the cumulative fuel cost of a hundred cars travelling the same route every day. But if 5 drivers decided to carpool and traveled in 1 cars instead, the fuel cost would be cut down by one-fifth. Now imagine how much forex we could save on if all lone drivers decided to carpool.
Carpooling can save billions of dollars.
