Cutting Down the Cost of Commuting

Posted: Updated:

A long commute to work isn't cheap. That's why a group of people who live in Waynesboro and work in Charlottesville are coming together to cut down on gas expenses.

More than a dozen people came out on Saturday for the Ride Share meeting in Waynesboro.

It's a way for people to meet others that drive from the valley to Charlottesville every day to get to work.

"If you're carpooling with another person that splits the cost in half and then if you think about if you split it three ways, four ways, and if you have a van pool of people that brings the cost down considerably," said Lisa Horanyi, program manager for Ride Share.

Ride Share is starting the process of assigning people to carpool vans.
