Happy Monday Liftsharers!
Autumn is upon us, the leaves are turning brown and cold weather is slowly returning to the UK. It’s always a shame to see the summer disappear, but fear not, because we’ve got a brand new feature on the Liftshare blog for you to enjoy.
This is the first edition of ‘Your Week in Liftsharing’ – a weekly guide to the hottest events happening up and down the country that you simply can’t afford to miss. These updates will appear every Monday to help you plan journeys using Liftshare, request lifts from drivers and come together in the name of your interests – be it gigging, film showings, expos, sporting fixtures and more.
So if you’re looking to cut petrol costs in the build-up to the expensive holiday season, or simply can’t bear the thought of waiting for buses in the rain, then be sure to check back each Monday to plan simpler travel and make new connections with like-minded people through Liftshare.
