Can we let you in on our New Year wish? You promise you won’t tell anyone? Well it’s quite simple, really. We’d like you to make a small change in 2019.
You see, a small change can make a big difference. What’s the small change? We’d like you to try sharing your commute. And it doesn’t matter if you’re a driver filling your empty seats, or a non-driver getting out of the cold, winter weather and enjoying the comfort of a warm car, you’ll still get to where you need to go, you’ll just be sharing the ride with someone else – maybe two!
By sharing their journey rather than travelling solo, our regular sharers save, on average, £1000 a year, reduce their carbon footprint and congestion by helping to take single occupancy vehicles off our roads (did you know, there are 36 MILLION empty seats on the commute?) and help to improve air quality. Our members also tell us how, by sharing their journeys, they’ve made friends. Read Kerry and Kaz’s story, here.
Those benefits really sound like a no-brainer, we know, but everyone likes the chance to win a prize! Everyone that forms a Liftshare team between 7th and 20th January will be entered into a prize draw for an opportunity to win a year’s cinema with Odeon or Cineworld – so you can watch the films with the correct quotes. Read the ts and cs, here.
All you have to do:
1. Sign up to Liftshare.com or your organisation’s Liftshare community
2. Add your journey and message your match – the passenger sends a request to share to the driver
3. The driver accepts the request and your Liftshare team is formed!
