Kinvara Carpooling

Carpooling; there has been talk of starting up a carpooling system in Kinvara. Anyone interested in offering lifts to other people can put a green dot-sticker on their windscreen. People can then see you are willing to offer them a seat. The sticker is available at Healing Harvest, Kinvara. This alternative system benefited a lot of people back in the ‘60’s and is now becoming popular again in small villages throughout the continent. It could be helpful for short distances around Kinvara and for Gort, Galway etc. The next step might be having a pick-up point (e.g. bus stop or a shop entrance) where people can indicate that they are looking for a lift. This is a worthy community activity and good for the environment.
