“It’s equivalent to a £2,500 pay rise”

“The cost of fuel makes the case for car-sharing overwhelming. I estimate my car pool keeps about £150 a month in my pocket that would otherwise glug down my filler cap. At typical levels of taxation, that’s equivalent to a salary rise of £2,500.” Norman

What is car-sharing?

Car-sharing is when there is more than one occupant in a private car. We all share cars regularly, with our friends and family, without thinking about it. But there are often times when a driver has empty seats in the car simply because they don't know of anyone who needs a lift.

Liftshare enables organised car-sharing by connecting people travelling in the same direction so they can arrange to travel together and share the costs, whilst reducing congestion and pollution at the same time.

How can I get involved?

The service is available to anyone over 18, commuters, students, football supporters, festival goers, tourists, employees - anyone!

Joining the scheme is simple and completely FREE. All you have to do is register your details and then activate your account. You do this by clicking on the link that we send to your email.

Once you've registered your journey and searched for a suitable match, you can then contact the member (s).

When can I share a car?

Because of the organisation involved, car-sharing is most appropriate for pre-planned or regular journeys, including:

  • Getting to and from work
  • Getting to and from university
  • Travelling to a festival, big event or show
  • Going to the match at the weekend
  • Doing the weekly shop
  • Getting the children to school
  • Or simply visiting friends

But you can also search for traveling companions for one-off journeys to anywhere in the country.
