Quality of life - car sharing on your journey to work

MySector1 status

Are rising petrol prices making a big dent in your pocket? Do you ever feel that you’d like to do a little bit more for the environment? Or are you simply bored during the journey into work? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, maybe you should consider car sharing as an option.

Car sharing takes recognition of the fact that there are millions of empty car seats on UK roads every day and encourages people who may be going the same way to consider sharing their car journeys.

Car sharing has many benefits:

  • Lower petrol costs for individuals ~ you can slash your fuel costs by 50% or more
  • Reduced CO2 emissions are great for the environment
  • Reduce your carbon footprint
  • Less congestion on the roads resulting in quicker journeys for everyone
  • Social aspects ~ opportunities to make new friends and contacts

There are several car sharing schemes out there, many organised with the help of the national Liftshare network. Lots of these schemes are not restricted to cars either. There are also plenty of groups and ‘buddy’ schemes for walking, cycling, taxis and public transport out there. So however you get to and from work, there is sure to be a suitable sharing scheme out there for you!

How to get involved:
