The Breckenridge Free Ride believes in promoting green transportation options. We thought it would be helpful to provide information on Ridesharing. Internet sites have been around for many years to link people to rideshare trip opportunities.
Transportation is one of the biggest contributors of greenhouse emissions. If you look out at city traffic, or at a busy interstate, it's easy to see why. Millions of people drive great distances alone as an SOV every day. It takes a lot of energy to push all those vehicles. When so many of those people are going the same way, why not share the ride? Going to Denver and have room?
eRideShare.com puts the power of the Internet to work, connecting commuters or cross-country travelers going the same way, and the service is free. Put two people together in one car instead of separately in two cars, and the greenhouse emissions are cut in half. This is significant impact. You still get where you want to go, while saving plenty of cash. Maybe you'll even make a new friend or two.
