When you drive alone to work every day, you foot the bill for gas. Why not share the ride—and the expenses? Rideshare regularly with just one other person and you’ll spend half of what you used to. Even once a week will help. You’ll not only save on gas, you’ll also put fewer miles on your car, limit wear and tear—maybe even get a break on insurance costs.

Fill out the form in the space provided and answer five questions to figure out how much money Ridesharing can save you each year*. Please enter numeric values only. No “$” entries needed. Calculations will automatically be displayed at the bottom of the form.



* Estimates based on the Automobile Club of Southern California’s Your Driving Costs 2012 using an average of 15,000 miles per year at a cost of 59.6¢ per mile for gas, maintenance, tires, insurance, license, registration, taxes, depreciation, and finance charge. This average was based on a $3.357/gallon cost of gas (the late-2011 U.S. price from AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report). You may override this estimate by entering your actual gasoline costs and MPG in the form above.
