Car pooling

Filed under: worklife — grantfrear @ 8:11 am

After realising it would be difficult to manage without a car for work I decided to try a car pooling system recently introduced to Auckland. It is called cityhop and operates in a similar way to schemes in Europe. So today was my first real chance to use the service. Somewhat uncertain, having not really read through the user guide and conditions of use, I log into the web site ( and make a booking. The only hiccup encountered was how to exit the Auckland City Council carpark. A quick call to the operators of the service and I was on the road.

Overall a very positive experience that has given me renewed energy to keep riding a scooter to work, to encourage my workmates to continue to investigate public transport options and to stave off the day I need to buy another car to support the family.
