Does the idea of taking your kids to school every day sound exhausting? But what if you live too far from the school to have your student walk or bike, and you don’t want them to ride the bus? An option to consider is to start carpooling in Clermont! Carpooling is a great way to interact with others in your community, save fuel and get a few more minutes to yourself. Toyota of Clermont is here to give you tips on how to make carpooling a great experience, and the best Toyota models to bring to a carpool.
What to know about carpooling
When carpooling, you may think about one or two benefits. However, there are probably more benefits than you think! Here are the some of the top benefits picked out by our staff at Toyota of Clermont:
- Community interaction – Through a carpool, you might meet new neighbors that you and your children will be able to spend time with and develop friendly relationships.
- Save money on fuel – Now that you’re utilizing one vehicle at a time, it’s saving a ton on fuel! Not only is that good for your wallet, it’s good for the environment.
- Times where you won’t have to worry about driving – Sometimes all you need is a little bit of time to yourself to unwind and de-stress. Thanks to it being your neighbor’s turn to pick up the kids, you finally have that alone time to do whatever you need to do without distraction.
If you’re thinking about using carpooling when your kids go back to school in Clermont, here are some suggestions:
- Pack toys, snacks, medications and anything else you feel as though children will need. It may not be a long trip, but keeping children and family safe while driving should be a top priority when you’re their chaperone.
- Ensure that every child that needs a child seat gets one. It’s the responsibility of the driver to make sure that each child seat is the correct size for each child, so make sure you’re communicating with their parents before they strap in.
