Carpooling provides numerous benefits, yet less than 10 percent of commuters make use of it. Whether they don’t understand the benefits or they value riding alone, many people are missing out on the great benefits of carpooling. Carpooling helps preserve your vehicle, it’s safer for the environment and helps you save money. With all three of these benefits combined, it is no brainer to carpool when you have the opportunity. 

Carpooling Extends the Lifespan of Your Car

Every time you get in your vehicle to go somewhere, you are putting wear and tear on your vehicle. Between tires, gas and other components of your vehicle, it can be costly to own a vehicle. You want to make sure you can extend the lifespan of your vehicle for as long as possible. When you carpool with others you use your vehicle less. Experts suggest those who carpool reduce their amount of driving by around 31 percent. For you, this means may spend less on tires, oil changes, gas and more. This could lead to significant savings throughout the year. 

Saves You Fuel Costs and Benefits the Environment

There are over 250 million cars driving around in the United States. In order to keep these vehicles fueled, it takes over 13 million barrels of oil a day. This can wreak havoc on the environment as more and more drilling happens. By increasing the number of carpoolers by 10 percent, you help drivers save $1.1 billion on gas and other costs, and your personal savings can add up to hundreds of dollars each year. Not to mention, carpooling means fewer cars on the road, which reduces your exposure to pollutants.

Save on Car Insurance

When insurance companies calculate your auto insurance premiums, they analyze your risks. The more miles you drive, the more you expose yourself to accidents. When insurance companies see the amount of miles you drive, they convert this number into a dollar amount. The fewer miles you commute, the lower your insurance costs. This is great for those who are interested in reducing their insurance rates. On the other hand, the more miles you drive, the more your insurance may cost. This is why carpooling is not only good for the environment and car costs, but it can also be beneficial for your insurance as well.
