Meet Pamela Pacheco, Our 2020 Carpool Month Campaign Winner
This February, Pamela came across the Carpool Month promotion in the City of Brantford’s Corporate newsletter and was intrigued by the idea, especially when one of her colleagues encouraged her to participate.
“We recently started to carpool together, and had been talking about ways to connect with other people to join our carpool, says Pamela. The campaign was a reminder of how important carpooling is and how we need to encourage our colleagues and friends to try it; especially with the new Carpool Ontario ride-matching tool, which makes the planning that much easier.”
When asked what advice she would give to someone who is hesitant about trying carpooling, Pamela enthusiastically says, “Go for it! Give it a try, you won’t go back! For years co-workers and I would say we really should look into finding ways to carpool, and we just never got around to planning. And then when we finally started doing it, we were like “oh my goodness, this is amazing! Why did we take so long to figure this out?”
