Baton Rouge to launch carpooling program, website
BATON ROUGE- The Capital Region Planning Commission plans to launch a carpooling program for the Baton Rouge area later this month.
The commission would like to see more carpooling, not only to help relieve the Baton Rouge area's oppressive traffic congestion, but also to reduce a source of pollutants that contribute to the formation of ozone.
The commission will unveil this month a new Web-based carpooling site to match commuters who have similar schedules, interests and workplaces.
Signup is free, and information will be kept secure until an individual wants to share something with a potential fellow carpooler.
