Become a liftsharer

Lift-sharing websites are an easy way to find 'buddies' to share your car, immediately making your transportation at least twice as energy efficient. Or if you don't have a car or don't want to use yours, you can find someone who travels to the same location as you every day and share a ride to work. It is easy and safe and will not only halve your use of petrol but also halve the costs of driving to work.

Sharing your car with one other person immediately takes a car off the road and thus reduces your carbon emissions by half. Sign up today with your local lifts-sharing network - you'll be amazed how easy it is to make new friends.
