Carpooling: The Essential Tool for Sports Parents

Carpooling is more than just ridesharing. Carpooling strikingly reduces commute costs, curtails traffic congestion, and obviously saves on a lot of time. As per a Google Consumer Survey report published by Parents Magazine ( ), a massive 44 percent parents spend weekly five hours or more driving their kids to sports activities or hobby classes. Considering the time crunch that people face, time spent on driving is mostly exhausting and stressful. Around 35 percent parents reported that they found driving their kids to be more stressful than filling taxes. Over 40 percent felt their regular work schedule was affected because of driving kids to and from school and extracurricular activities. A majority of parents confessed that that their jobs have been put at risk to cater to their kids’ extracurricular and social calendar.
