Environmental Stewardship

Carpool to work, church, school

Did you know the average American spends 42 hours a year in traffic? And, did you know studies have shown that using HOV lanes can save 10 to 15 minutes in your morning commute? There are so many benefits to carpooling or ride-sharing. It saves money, gives you more time to read, listen to music, chat, or pray. It also cuts down on traffic, which is what makes our commutes so miserable. You may be rewarded by NuRide for making the decision to greening the environment by carpooling, biking, or using public transportation. NuRide also helps commuters find travel companions who have similar traveling routes and working hours.  Carpooling with friends and co-workers also strengthens personal bonds in our increasingly tuned-out world.
MassCommute has a list of Transportation Management Associations (TMA) that help  commuters to improve their commute, save money, and improve the quality of our air around Massachusetts.
