here to stay:
While there is plenty of talk of
people leaving their cars, our experience tells us that
cars are here to stay. The convenience of car travel is
simply too much. We have observed in the past four years
that each fuel cost high results in a temporary euphoria
for alternate mode of travel that dies down, as quickly.
While many have adopted Public Transport for commuting,
it is not possible or convenient for many others for
reasons such as odd hours of work, availability of
public transport etc.
smart way to commute:
Carpooling is sometimes is called
travelling as it reduces cost of
transportation, pollution and stress while
maintaining almost the same level of convenience. Many
such examples are seen in everyday life where parents
get together to drop and pick children to school or
people carpool to work, especially when they live far
away from their workplace.

Carpooling Benefits workplaces & Individuals:
Carpooling offers many and s much
more than enabling Carpooling. It is vindication of
Management's commitment and a quick barometer of how

style that is low in resource consumption while still
being dignified, convenient and satisfying.
