(search came up with zero when I tried: carpool, car pool, and car pooling)
Are there any apps commonly being used for carpooling? [[Do Lyft & Uber apps include carpooling, or are they just competing with taxis through matching riders with drivers who are paid? I'm thinking an app that gets a group of two or more drivers with shared interests together, and not a fee for service concept.]]
I can't help but notice during commuting times that it seems (to me) the average vehicle occupancy hovers around 1.1 people per car (something like every tenth car has two people in it instead of just the driver).
Think of the impact on your twice a day 'Colwood Crawl' commuting time if this average were upped to 2 people per car, or even (gasp!!), 3 people per car.
ps. Would you be in favour of a toll ($1/mile?) levied on vehicles where only the driver is the occupant on congested roads? [Administration handled through a photo radar type of setup.]
