Car sharing

Car sharing means combining your car journey with other people who are doing all or part of the same trip. It’s a great way to cut costs and spend time with other people. Journeys are more fun when shared, so why not give it a go?

Car sharing brings many benefits by saving you money, reducing wear and tear to your vehicle, reducing congestion and helping the environment.  Find out how much your car is costing each year using the Liftshare Cost Calculator.

If half of all the UK’s motorists received a lift one day a week then congestion and pollution would be reduced by 10 per cent and traffic jams by 20 per cent. Do you know of colleagues who live near you, or on your route? Perhaps your home is on the route for one of your colleagues and they could pick you up on the way?

If you don’t know anyone to share your car journeys with then why not sign up to Nottinghamshare?  It’s a free service designed to bring potential lift-sharing partners together across Nottinghamshire – whether you’re seeking a lift or can offer one for a daily commute to work or even a one-off trip.

The Nottinghamshare service is completely free to use and has already helped hundreds of people to car share. To find suitable car sharing partners in your area please visit
