Car Sharing

Share cars, share the costs!

Car sharing is when two or more people travel together instead of in separate cars. They may pool their cars and alternate between them, or regularly use a single car and contribute to the costs. The aim is to reduce the number of cars on the road being used to transport a single person. In this way car sharing can help to reduce congestion and consequently improve traffic flow and journey times during peak travel hours. Car sharing can provide a real solution where there is a lack of public transport in rural areas.

Joining the scheme will enable you to simply and securely find others travelling in the same direction so you can arrange to share a car. Registration is free and the scheme can be used to find car share partners for regular commuting trips as well as for occasional leisure journeys such as to football matches or clubs. 'Do your bit' and this will help to cut your travel costs as well as making it easier to park, reduce congestion and air pollution.
