Traffic Solutions and the Community Environmental Council are
helping commuters earn hundreds of dollars a month by using a
new carpooling app called
Carma. Using the
Carma app, drivers earn money for each passenger and riders
carpool free through February 28th. The app can also help you
find other commuters to carpool with, instantly.
Download the app on your
iPhone and start carpooling today.

I Carpool Every Day?
Lots of people do, but even if
you can't, carpool as many days as you can. Remember,
every day of the week you carpool saves 20% -- not
just money, stress and traffic congestion -- but 20%
of the pollutants that would normally go into the
air. A great way to start is carpooling one day a
week! Review your schedule and plan on one day when
you can stick to a normal routine.
at First You Don't Succeed...
|If you don't find anyone with
carpool the first time, don't give
up -- keep trying! Names are regularly added to Traffic
You don't have to carpool
everyday. Some people are interested in
carpools that are on an on-call basis, some
one or two days a week, while others prefer
carpools that have a regular schedule.
Carpools are a very flexible alternative and
can be tailored to your needs.
& Ride Lots
are available in some locations.
If you feel uncomfortable
taking the first step in setting up a
carpool, call us at Traffic Solutions. We'll
answer your questions and ease your fears.
We'll call potential carpool partners for you
and make sure they are still interested. We
can even tell them to expect a call from you.
