Benefits of Carpooling

You will save a lot of money! CAA's Driving Cost Calculator can give you an idea how much it costs to own and operate a personal vehicle. Carpooling allows you to share that expense, leaving you with cash for other things important to you.

If you alternate vehicles, carpooling helps reduce the wear and tear on each vehicle. Also, taking turns driving helps share the stress of driving.

You will also help in the effort to reduce traffic congestion and improve air quality. That saves us all money and makes Waterloo Region an even better place to live.

Interested in starting or joining a carpool?  The Region of Waterloo's TravelWise program offers a free online carpool matching service!
