Unlike earlier generations, the current generation in India is quite open to concepts like car pooling and is willing to set aside their inhibitions and experiment.
Now you might wonder, for a concept to be so beneficial why arenâ€™t there many going in favor of it. While there is no absolute protest against it, people generally are not very keen on sharing rides with other commuters in a car. We are living in a society where the norms dictate us to be wary of strangers. And it is not easy to come out of comfort zone, and socialize with others.
Car pooling, the concept is not just friendly to your pocket. But it can benefit you in multiple other ways
It is not just your daily commute to office that you can share with others. There are also trips to other cities, say from Chennai to Bangalore, which could be quite hefty on your pocket when done over bus or flight. Yet, the same will work out cheaper and more comfortable when you share the ride with fellow commuters in the route.
Yes, the first option people would suggest is to take public transport, either a bus or a train to reach where they want to.
A person living in the central Delhi, traveling to Gurgaon on a daily basis for work can testify on the plights of traveling so far with so much traffic.
