Traffic. We’ve all complained about it. But what can we do? Work from home as an option is not really catching up nor is living closer to the workplace going to be as easy as the real estate ads want you to believe.
But there is one thing you could do – share your rides. The math is simple- if more people are traveling in the same direction in their personal car, cab, or auto – share their daily rides, the fewer number of vehicles there will be on the roads.
Fewer cars, less traffic, lower CO2 emissions – the path to traffic-free bliss doesn’t look that unattainable now, does it?
