There are two ways to fix Bangalore’s most pressing issue: Either you wait for the government to build good roads and efficient public transport… or you go ahead and solve it yourself. A couple of people in ThoughtWorks chose to take the problem head-on. They spent some time outside work and kick started the car-pooling initiative in Bangalore by building a really nice online community. Check it out !
Here’s a nice little summary about the community from their website :
What is Commute Easy?
Commute Easy is a pooling initiative that aims to make your daily commute easier by connecting you to commuters across Bangalore who share your route.
Pooling can radically change the chaotic traffic scene in Bangalore.
By opting to commute easy, you can –
* Help decongest traffic in Bangalore.
* Lower your own travel costs and stress levels.
* Bring about a reduction in pollution levels.
* Broaden your social network.
So go ahead, breathe easy and commute faster!
