GDN Reader's View: Carpooling benefits


Living and working on this wonderful island is a great experience. Bahrain for all and all for Bahrain, I believe in strongly. We can save our beloved Bahrain from environmental pollution with some easy steps particularly while on the road.
Traffic congestion increases vehicle emissions and degrades ambient air quality, especially in the past 10-15 years. Traffic congestion on weekdays during office and school hours is very serious.
Driving takes a big bite out of your budget and your time. Driving during peak hours is another headache.
I think carpooling would be a great idea. In many countries trying this system like the US the High-Occupancy Vehicle lane, also known as the carpool or diamond lane, is a traffic management strategy to promote and encourage ridesharing; thereby alleviating congestion and maximising people-carrying capacity.
Carpooling saves money and reduces congestion on our roads and highways. It also gives you the opportunity to develop new friendships with co-workers or other commuters. There are a number of benefits when two or more people share a ride in one vehicle...
Carpooling can save you hundreds and even thousands of dinars a year.
It reduces the stress of your commute and allows you to read, relax, or even work while commuting.
Carpooling enables some families to cut back to one car or to do without a car at all.
If you don’t have a car or don’t drive, carpooling allows you to consider jobs throughout the area.
Carpooling can provide you with new friendships and company for your commute.
Carpooling reduces air pollution and traffic congestion, something that benefits all of us!
Carpooling helps to combat rising traffic congestion, by filling the extra seats in your car. There are fewer drivers, and therefore fewer cars crowding the roads.
