Benefits of Ridesharing: Did You Know?

Did you know that Pittsburgh drivers experience an annual delay of 12,510,000 hours in congested traffic? The extra time also means extra gas consumption, reportedly 20,000,000 extra gallons. The estimated cost of this congestion totals $235,000,000 (according to the "The 2002 Urban Mobility Report" by the Texas Transportation Institute). By ridesharing even twice a week, commuters can save money, time and help reduce the congestion on our area roadways.

Did you know that according to Census Bureau records, over 44% of our region's employees who work outside the home, travel more than 20 minutes to their workplace? Beaver County had the highest percentage of commuters in this group—59%!!
