More people on the same car means less pollution and less traffic. A smart way to reduce CO2 emissions from cars in our travels is the Carpooling.

Car sharing has grown a lot in recent years due to the diffusion of a lot of web services, including Apps that allow the meeting between who is looking for a ride and who offers a ride. It’s a easy way to know people, plan together your own trip, and cut travel costs, in a few clicks: just indicating the point of departure, arrival and time.
If we want to make available to our car we can do it free of charge, indicating the city and the way that we want to share.

In fact, the possibilities offered by web services to know in advance information, reviews, and details about the person who offers you or ask you a pass, allows to overcome the normal distrust of strangers drivers.
