Car Pooling

Print

carCarpooling is a simple yet effective way that you can help reduce carbon emissions that contribute to global climate change, save money, and reduce congestion on the roads.

The City of North Port encourages car pooling.

We hope you find this information a good way to commute or travel inexpensively, “make a difference” in our environment and maybe even make a few new friends.

About Car Pooling and Ride-Sharing:

Commuter Services can help anyone who is interested in ride-sharing to save money and reduce stress.

In fact, on July 21, 2010, the City of North Port began a partnership with Commuter Services of Florida to establish a plan for helping City employees find alternative ways to commute to work.

Sharing a ride also means less wear and tear on your personal vehicle, reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil, and even improving traffic conditions.
