Lightfoot has launched a new carpool Facebook group to help locals beat the commuter blues and lighten the load on the road by joining forces with their workmates and neighbours.
QTown Carpool is a group dedicated to connecting commuters and reducing traffic during peak times.
This page isn’t necessarily about trying to find lifts to the snow, or rides across to Dunedin etc. Instead, it has been started to help everyday commuters find regular shared rides to and from work each day.
Getting started is easy – just post your location and destination and see if you can meet a match to share a ride with. A car-pooling arrangement won’t be for everyone. But, if it results in less cars in the queue each morning and evening, it will certainly help everyone.
