Carpooling: A Solution to Air Pollution?Parizzo Webmaster
Ridesharing also known as carpooling is the sharing of car journeys so that more than one person travels in a car, and prevents the need for others to have to drive to a location themselves.
By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person’s travel costs such as: fuel costs, tolls, and the stress of driving.
Carpooling/Ridesharing is also a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing journeys reduces air pollution, carbon emissions, traffic congestion on the roads, and the need for parking spaces.
According to data released by the World Health Organisation (WHO) Four of the worst cities in the world for air pollution are in Nigeria. Yes! you guessed right, Lagos inclusive. However, Onitsha is labelled the world’s most polluted city for air quality!
RIDE-SHARING TO THE RESCUE…
Basically, the fewer cars we have on our roads the better it is for us especially as regards this AIR POLLUTION menace that is slowly causing a lot of health issues.
Nothing beats having a toxic free environment and sharing rides can actually curb the problem of air pollution, at least to a great extent.
Authorities often encourage carpooling, especially during periods of high pollution or high fuel prices. Car sharing is a good way to use up the full seating capacity of a car, which would otherwise remain unused if it were just the driver using the car.
That is why at PARIZZO, we do encourage Ride-sharing. In fact, it is what we do.
Why not join us at Parizzo (a ridesharing company) and help save our environment while you enjoy cheap and comfortable ride to work daily. Now, that’s a WIN-WIN situation.
