Why Share a Ride?

The idea behind the scheme is to enable individuals to car-share to and from work or during your pleasure journeys. A number of benefits can be found from this:

  • Reduces Traffic Problems and Traffic Congestion
  • Boosts local economy and employment opportunities
  • Cuts the cost of driving by sharing expenses
  • Reduces the stress of driving
  • Enables you to meet people who you might not normally meet
  • Enables those without cars to apply for jobs they could not apply for before
  • Reduces car emissions

How Can I Get Involved?

All you have to do is register your details on this site. Alternatively, call us or e-mail us to request further information. You will then be sent a registration form for the scheme. On this form will be a number of questions relating to your preferences and the journeys you make. You do not have to own your own vehicle; however, you should make a note of this on your registration form. Upon receipt of a completed application form your details will be entered onto the “Share a Ride” database. You will then be contacted with any possible matches. .

Does It Cost Anything To Join?

The simple answer is-for individual members- “No”- it is completely free to register and you may be taken off the database at any time you wish.
