Memphis Area Rideshare

I picked up a brochure on Memphis Area Rideshare at the University of Memphis Sustainable Technologies event.

Did you know that the typical worker who switches from driving alone to carpooling saves more than $1000 a year and avoids driving an average of 5000 miles per year?

Did you know that the average American family uses almsot 3 gallons of fuel per day--enough to fill 21 standard bathtubs a year.

Driving a car is one of the most polluting acts an individual can do.

The Rideshare program maintains a database of people interested in carpooling. You sign up, enter your commuting needs, and then receive a list of people who share your travel pattern.

Once you are a registered commuter, you receive several free taxi rides per year in case of an emergency.

Pretty cool, huh? Has anyone ever participated in this program? Know someone who has? Tell me about it...
