Liftshare Week 2019: cut your fuel costs in half

Poster for Liftshare Week 2019As part of Liftshare Week 2019, the University of Nottingham is promoting the benefits of sharing car journeys and encouraging staff to sign up for the University’s car share scheme to find someone to travel with, saving on cash and carbon.

The University provides a free-to-use website specifically for staff, which allows staff with empty car seats to connect with those who are making a similar journey. Why not take a look during Liftshare Week (7-13 October)?

You don’t have to car share every day to make a difference. Even sharing just once a week offers financial savings, as well as reducing your carbon footprint, congestion and demand for parking spaces.

Staff can get involved whether or not they have a car. Those in the car can then decide to either share the driving, or make a contribution toward the fuel – and as no profit is being made, there’s no impact on motor insurance.

To celebrate Liftshare Week, anyone who forms a Liftshare team with another member between 30 September and 20 October 2019 will be entered into a prize draw to win a Red Letter Day voucher up to the value of £150.

The more University staff that have registered a journey, the greater the chance of finding someone to car share with, so it’s worth encouraging your colleagues to join too.

Visit Liftshare and follow the instructions to register and add your journey details. Then search for a match, get in touch and get sharing!
