In addition, HART offers incentives to start, join, or refer others to carpool. See “Commuter Support and Incentives” tab for more information.
Since you will be using your personal vehicle less frequently, carpool commuters are often eligible for reductions in their personal automobile insurance premiums. Contact your insurance carrier for more information.
That long commute can be a lonely one. Why not share it with someone? Many carpoolers report that the camaraderie of their carpool makes their commute more enjoyable.
You don’t have to be a “tree hugger” to help the environment. For each gallon of gas a car burns, it emits about 20 pounds of carbon dioxide. Carpool just two days a week can reduce your greenhouse gas emissions by an average of two tons per year. (US EPA)
