There are lots of great ways that you can get to work at a downtown clinic or at a major corporation without sitting in traffic on your own every day in your car. Some people choose to equip themselves with a portable music player and something to read and trek through public transportation. But, if you're not living in a central location or need to get to a workplace that is a little far away from your home then this might not be the best options. Then you might want to think about creating a carpool with some others.
There are lots of great benefits to choosing to carpool rather than taking your own car. First, you're helping out the environment. The less cars on the road every day on their way to appointments, those going to school, and those going to work, the better off we will all be in the future. You're also going to be saving yourself money. You can reduce how much you're paying on gas, maintenance on your vehicle, parking and tolls for different highways. This can certainly all add up. Having some other people in the car could even make your trip to and from work every day a little more enjoyable.
The keys to building a successful group of carpoolers is that you're all leaving from a relatively close distance apart and all going to roughly the same place. You don't need to all be going to exactly the same place. If you know a few people who live near you who all work on the same street downtown, this could work out well. But, you won't want to be carpooling with someone where you need to go twenty minutes out of your way on each end of the trip to pick them up and drop them off.
Next, you'll need to decide where you're going to meet and who's going to be doing the driving. Some people like to drive and carpool so that they can save on gas rather than giving up their car a few days a week. There are lots of different ways that you can decide who drives. You might go with the most comfortable or fuel efficient car or rotate drivers. If you all live in the same condo building then you won't have to worry much about a pick-up point. But, if there is a few miles between all of you then you might want to choose something central. Work all of this out first and you should have a successful carpool experience.
You will also want to make sure that you know how you're working out the money portion. If you're taking turns driving with other people who work in your office then you might not have to worry about it. But, if there is one driver then they should be compensated for gas and the use of their car.
