Find company with ride-sharing

Do you drive to work or leisure-time activities by yourself? Travelling alone makes no sense at all. How about asking a friend for a ride or setting up a ride-sharing group? A shared journey is also a great way to meet co-workers in the morning.

Savings: Ride-sharing makes daily mobility more fun and also saves money. Sharing the costs with other passengers means you pay less.

Remember this: It may be difficult to find a schedule and a route that suits everyone in the beginning. However, a bit of flexibility and some careful planning of the routes and schedules guarantees that the rides will soon work well.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Sharing a ride with three people three times a week instead of driving alone will decrease your carbon footprint by about 1% each year. If a million Finns did this, it would save the equivalent of 10,000 carbon footprints per year. The savings come in fuel consumption and street space because there are fewer cars on the road.
