London Liftshare simply matches you with others wanting to travel in the same direction so you can share the journey and the costs. It allows you to benefit from the convenience of the car, whilst alleviating the associated problems of congestion and pollution.
You can share a car for any journey - getting to work, doing the weekly shop, taking the children to school, going to the match at the weekend, travelling to a festival, event or show, getting to or from university, visiting friends or getting to the airport. You can offer lifts if you have spare seats in your car or look for a lift if you don't have a car.
Having joined the scheme you simply register their journey and the system automatically lists all potential Londonliftshare matches. The matches are displayed in both table and map format, allowing the you to easily find the most suitable people.
Having found a match you simply send an automated email to any likely matches and arrange to travel together. The system also calculates the financial and CO2 saving you are likely to make on each journey compared to making that journey alone in the car.
Please take a few minutes to enter any regular or one-off journeys that you are planning, and see for yourself how easily you can be put in contact with other travellers going your way…
