The amount of cars coming and going to an ice arena is staggering. Many vehicles that arrive at the rink only have one user in them. Carpooling options, organizing and dedicated carpooling parking spots could be part of the measure taken to increase rider occupancy per vehicle arriving at the arena.

Benefits: 

  • Less traffic at the arena
  • Less air pollution
  • Less stress for drivers driving to and finding parking at the arena
  • Opportunity to network with other carpoolers

Savings:

  • Cost savings or cost sharing for vehicle fuel
  • CO2
