Many companies now encourage their employees to carpool daily. Quick Ride has also partnered with top companies such as Wipro, TATA, Cognizant, IBM and Infosys. Even if you are not an employee of these companies, we would highly recommend you to carpool for your daily commute.
So here are some reasons why you should Carpool if you are travelling to work everyday by public transport or driving alone to work.
It can be cheaper
If you are booking a cab everyday then the fare can be expensive. By carpooling you pay almost the same amount of a bus and you can really save a lot of money.
Cabs are expensive for daily commutes and travelling by bus can be really uncomfortable at most times. By carpooling you get to sit comfortably in a private car and not worry about if you have to stand in a crowded bus.
Share fuel price
If you are a car owner and you commute to work daily alone then you can share the empty seats to Ride Takers and earn some money that can cover half of your fuel expense.
Expand social network
If you are an employee then your social network is pretty important. While carpooling you have more opportunities to meet people from different companies. Who knows you might even land up in your dream company through carpooling.
Better for the environment
If you take a taxi or drive alone to work daily then your carbon footprint is likely to be more. Carpooling may not save the earth but it can surely help in reducing your carbon footprint gradually.
Reduce traffic congestion
Getting stuck in traffic can be really frustrating whenever you are late for work or you are tired after a long day at work. If people carpool more often then there is obviously going to be fewer cars in the road, which will help in reducing traffic.
Create your own bubble
With Covid, daily commutes have to be looked into and more safety measures should be imposed. Carpooling daily with the same group of people will make your exposure to strangers less. And this can lower your chance of contacting the virus.
So, is Carpooling really safe? Yes, Carpooling can be completely safe for daily commute if necessary measures are taken.
