50 Ways to Stay Well #35 – Carpooling

Carpooling is utilized to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save money, reduce wear and tear on cars, and to utilize the carpool lanes to get there faster. In Lethbridge we’re fortunate to drive from one end of the city to the other in about 15 minutes so carpooling is not as popular in our city as other cities. But this doesn’t mean there is no value in carpooling, carpooling offers health benefits as well.

  • It reduces the stress of your commute and allows you to read, relax, or even work while commuting.
  • Carpooling enables some families to cut back to one car.
  • If you don’t have a car or don’t drive, carpooling allows you to consider jobs throughout the area.
  • Carpooling can provide you with new friendships and company for your commute.

Even if you’re coming from the south side to the University, consider organizing a carpool.
