In 100 years, weve gone from horse and buggy to over 14 million cars on Indian roads. Increased road rage and gridlock affect everyone. One of the greatest benefits of sharing the ride to work is taking the stress out of driving. Rather than beginning the day irritated from fighting traffic and searching endlessly for parking, youll arrive ready to take on the task at hand.
There is another, more tragic cost related to automobile use: degradation of our environment. Every day, millions of vehicles pump pollutants into our atmosphere. Some of these fall to earth, fouling streams and contaminating crops. Others rise into the stratosphere, damaging the ozone layer and causing global climate warming the greenhouse effect.
Still more of these pollutants cling close to earth, inhaled with every breath we take. Air pollution is a proven cause in several lung ailments, from asthma to emphysema.
Ridesharing reduces the impact of automobiles on our roadways and our environment very simply by travelling in groups rather than alone, ridesharing decreases the number of vehicles on our roads. Not only this but also cost incurred on fuel would be greatly reduced.
Ridesharing will also help in reducing hassles we face due to fewer parking spaces available.
Commuters that live near each other and share a common destination form the simplest and most common “carpool” arrangement. Carpooling is an ideal cost saving arrangement, particularly for those individuals who commute long distances to and from work each day, have limited access to public transit and few transportation options available to them. There are sites on the internet like Indimoto.com which help users in getting carpool/rideshare matches in their city and locality.
