With gas prices soaring, it's time to "jump in the pool".

Capital Area Transportation Authority (CATA) and some Biggby Coffee locations have teamed up to encourage car pooling.

Select Biggby locations are holding events for people trying to find a car pool group.

Cathleen Edgerly said, "To try to help people meet up with others who are interested in finding carpool or vanpool partners from a similar area, they can meet face-to-face and work out the details with that."

Three more events will be held this week.

Wedenesday, Sept. 17: Biggby Coffee at 3520 Okemos Rd. in Okemos (5-7 p.m.)

Thursday, Sept. 18: Biggby Coffee at 120 W. Ottawa in downtown Lansing (5-6 p.m.)

Friday, Sept. 19: Biggby Coffee at 13181 Schavey Rd. in DeWitt (5-7 p.m.)

What a cool grass roots thing to do! Biggby is the perfect place to hold these events. Good luck and I hope a bunch of people can save a bunch of money and help our environment by carpooling.
