Benefits of carpooling

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

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

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