Being a single person in the Lower Mainland, you put a lot of kms on your vehicle. Driving in from Langley or Surrey to hit-up a concert or to dine at a restaurant in the city starts to take a toll on your car and the environment. It's also a lot of time behind the wheel. Uggh… Who needs more of that?
Being a member of a social club that offers ride-sharing reduces the driving fatigue and the wear on your engine. It also minimizes your carbon contribution. Best of all, ride-sharing presents engaging opportunities to chat with other singles.
Socializing with other interesting people is one of best parts about being a member with Events and Adventures. When you ride share, it's almost like starting your event early. Gabbing for 30 minutes with someone you just met beats listening to the Fox any day.
You can chat about upcoming events, those underachieving Canucks, the latest movie you saw and or your excitement for the upcoming Game of Thrones season; the dragons are coming of age!
E&A provides ride-sharing for all of their weekly events. Members can offer or request a ride at the bottom of every event page on the calendar.
For members without a vehicle, ride-sharing presents an alternative to public transportation. For members with a vehicle, it presents an opportunity to reduce the gas bill and use those wonderful HOV lanes.
Terrible with directions? Share the navigational burden with another member.
At the end of the night, debrief the event and extend your socializing on the way home. And if you're the gossiping type, really who isn't, it's a perfect chance to talk about the cutie you were chatting with.
Go green, save some money and socialize with other members before your event even begins.
