– Travel Together to Save the World

RoadSharing.comNewcomer to the social travel scene, RoadSharing aims to make a difference, specifically an environmental one. This site is concerned with your carbon footprint, which as you probably know by now is greatly augmented when you travel in your gas guzzling car.

One way to curb your carbon emissions is to car pool or to bring some people along with you on your next roadtrip. RoadSharing connects people who need a ride with those who’ve got a ride; thus people can get to where they need to be and make new friends on the way. The site is divided into two basic options: Search a route and Share a route. The latter is for those looking to drive people to a certain destination, while the former, is for those looking for a lift. The site is available in several languages including Italian and Spanish. Sign up is free. In Their Own Words

“How many people use alone their car for work, study or else, even several times a week? is an easy way to find someone to share a trip with, is a meeting point between those who offer and those who look for a lift and it is the best way to save money, pollute less and meet new friends!”
