Carpooling, also called ridesharing, is when car owners are sharing their cars with other people. Carpooling can be whether you are making a temporary trip, such as going to a unique vacation destination or it can be a more regular way to move around such as commuting to go to work on a daily basis. Carpooling is definitely a way to make people’s mobility easier!
Carpooling is one of the best alternative to public transports while still helping to keep on reducing CO2 emissions!
The notion of carpooling appeared for the first time in the USA, right after the recession in 1914. At that time, so many cheap cars flooded the american market, therefore cars were empty, so people decided to share those empty seats.
Carpooling reemerged in the 1970s after the petrol prices’ inflation which leads people to adapt to that crisis by preventing the overuse of single occupancy vehicles in order to save gas. These new campaigns also aimed at promoting the benefits of reducing CO2 emissions.
Nowadays, the notion of carpooling is pretty much known in the whole world. Each country has its own version of ridesharing. But still, according to international stats, it seems like things can be improved in order to unblock the traffic in big urban hubs areas as well as reducing CO2 emissions for our planet.
