UK Car Sharing Week Has Arrived!

It might shock you to know that a full car is actually BETTER for the environment than public transport. Don’t believe us? Take a look at this image taken from the Government’s ‘Transport Direct’ website.


The problem is, so many of us still drive alone. In fact, 91% of car commuting is single occupancy. Put another way: between us all, we’re driving 38 million empty car seats round the UK’s roads every morning rush hour alone.

Something clearly needs to be done to put bums on those spare seats. Because if average car occupancy can be increased to just 2, the UK’s CO2 emissions would drop by nine million tonnes.

And the good news is that something is being done! The first ever week dedicated to car-sharing takes place from 4-8 October. Nearly 400,000 people have already signed up to, but now liftshare Week aims to enable thousands more people to find others going their way so they can share the journey.

To take part in liftshare Week, sign up for free to find yourself a car-sharer (or two!). And if your boss doesn’t mind, stick a few posters round the office to tell your colleagues about it too – you can download them from our site.
