Car Share

You could save an average of £1000 per year, cut C02 emissions and help to reduce congestion in the city.

Who Could You Share a Lift With

What is car-sharing?

Car Sharing is when two or more people arrange to travel together, instead of taking two separate cars.

According to recent data, around 50,000 people travel to the city to work each week, with the majority of those choosing to travel by car. So with a little forward planning, commuters can save money and time by looking at the alternative travel arrangements available.

What are the benefits of car sharing?

Just some of the benefits include saving money on petrol and parking, meeting new people and reducing your carbon footprint. You could save up to £1000 per year on your commute to work- the longer your journey, or the more people you share with, the more money you could save.
For example, single occupancy journeys from Witham St Hughes to Lincoln can cost on average £25 per week on petrol and £25 per week on car parking. However by car sharing two to three times per week an annual saving of up to £1200 could be made.

What if I don’t drive?

People who don’t drive or have access to a car can also car share. When you register with Liftshare you can specify that you want to receive lifts only, and in return you can help the driver out with petrol costs.

What if I can’t commit to car sharing every day?

You are not committed to car sharing all of the time, you can car share as and when it suits you and your car share partners. It is important to find out what works best for you and those you are car sharing with. Car sharing just once or twice a week can make a big difference.

For more information on car sharing go to Access Lincoln and to start your search to find potential car share matches through the Liftshare website.
