Facebook Page Launched For Carpooling

August 18, 2011

Last night [Aug.17] the Facebook page ‘Help give a ride to work Bermuda‘ launched, which is designed to assist residents in helping other residents to get to work in light of the recent bus strike.

The page is approximately 12 hours old as of this writing, and has grown to almost 500 members. The movement has achieved support from both sides of the political aisle, with the official PLP Facebook page linking the page on their stream, and OBA Senator Craig Cannonier offering people a ride.

It is unclear at this time who started the page, however support for the movement continues to grow. Scores of locals have offered to give others a ride via the page, and posters say they will be flying pink/blue ribbons in support of the grassroots movement to help provide transport while the the labour dispute continues.

    Wonderful!! Can we get it on the air that this is happening? There may be many who need rides who don’t know about it. Is it possible to keep this going with a centralized telephone #? Just call it Carpooling, so we are not competing with taxis
