Solutions for commuters

What would you do with an extra $3,000? Take a long overdue vacation, treat yourself to jewelry, or maybe buy a new computer or smart phone? Where is this money going to come from in our tight budgets? By using SEMCOG’s MiRideshare, a free carpool matching service, commuters can save $3,000 a year just by sharing a ride to work.

Carpooling cuts the commute in half with two people sharing the ride. No matter how high gas prices go, sharing a ride is a great value. Many auto insurance companies offer discounts for lower mileage usage. MiRideshare, SEMCOG’s free carpooling program, has been saving commuters money since 1980.

Commuter Challenge
Take the challenge and participate in the annual Commuter Challenge! The “challenge” is for commuters to try a new way to work during the month of May. A big incentive for doing that these days is high gas prices as well as a desire for a “greener” commute. For more information, click the commuter challenge logo below.
