Carpool Websites see more Traffic, Roads Less in Chicagoland
Carpooling and Car Sharing Make Commuting Cheaper
Good choices in Chicagoland growing
By Iya Bakare
A growing number of residents in Chicago and nearby suburbs are opting to leave their cars at home or ditching them altogether by joining carpool groups or tapping car-share companies when they really need some wheels. A handful of good options in the area are enabling local residents to reduce their contribution to green house gases and air pollution.
One carpooling company, eRideShare.com, is a free online service for residents that offers a venue for people to meet other carpoolers and connect with other carpooler groups. It offers a listing for people who are interested in traveling to the grocery store, airport and other destinations. The company also offers services for companies, churches, music festivals and other organizations with large groups that need to travel.
“Global warming has a number of ramifications,” says Steve Schoeffler, eRideShare’s CEO. “The price of oil and the amount of air pollution generated from driving are great reasons to carpool.”
