FAIRFIELD COUNTY – Commuters looking to beat prices at the pump might want to consider joining a vanpool or slowing down long before getting to a red light on U.S. 33 to conserve gas.
RideSolutions, a vehicle pooling service, offered through the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, has received 52 calls and numerous e-mails from people around the region in the past two weeks inquiring about the program – as people look for ways to get some relief from high gas prices.
“I can’t even breathe in between calls and e-mails,” said Kymberlee Dudley, a program specialist for RideSolutions. “Even companies are calling in asking what (they) can do for their employees.”
