What would you do with an extra $3,000? Take a long overdue
vacation, treat yourself to jewelry, or maybe buy a new computer or
smart phone? Where is this money going to come from in our tight
budgets? By using SEMCOG's MiRideshare, a free carpool matching
service, commuters can save $3,000 a year just by
sharing a ride to work.
Carpooling cuts the commute in half with two people sharing the
ride. No matter how high gas prices go, sharing a ride is a great
value. Many auto insurance companies offer discounts for lower
mileage usage. MiRideshare, SEMCOG's free carpooling program, has
been saving commuters money since 1980.
