This Carpool Week (October 3 -9), we’re committed to saving the environment, one carpool commitment at a time.
Next month, SA will host its fourth consecutive Carpool Week from 3-9 October. The initiative is in lieu of Transport Month which runs every October. Last year, Transport Month had a theme called "together we move South Africa forward". The theme this year will be environmentally focused with Carpool Week promising to plant one tree for every success carpool. helen-zille-and-daniel-classen
“There is a common misunderstanding that carpooling takes away your flexibility. Truth is, you can reap great rewards from carpooling for even one day a week, when it suits you. Just one day can save 10% on your fuel bill and emissions, never mind the benefit of possibly making a friend for life. These small changes can improve our lives and the world we live in.”
