The first quarter of 2018 is off to a great start with enhancements to our platform! We’ve been working hard on becoming compliant with GDPR and enhancing our user experience to make our member’s journeys the best they can be!
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is an important change in data privacy regulations and comes into effect on the 25th May 2018. We’re committed to ensuring your data is safeguarded, so we have been working on updating our policies and infrastructure ready for this date.

Liftshare Companion app
It’s never been easier for organisations to update their members on what’s on offer for Liftsharers or changes to parking availability. This quarter, we implemented the functionality for community alerts sent by Liftshare Scheme Managers, to trigger a push notification for members that have the Liftshare Companion app
We’ve made several changes to the user experience of our website so that our members find it easier to use and get the most out of joining Liftshare.

We’re undergoing a complete overhaul of our Personalised Travel Planning tool and would love to hear your thoughts and feedback on how we can improve! Email Liftshare’s Head of Product, Sarah: firstname.lastname@example.org if you’ve got some ideas!
myPTP is a travel planning tool which integrates data for all modes of transport including walking, cycling, public transport (including Park and Ride), car sharing and single occupancy car journeys. It delivers a detailed and interactive personalised travel plan (PTP) in less than a minute, which can be emailed directly to an individual or viewed online through an interactive page of results.
The tool can be utilised to communicate quickly and effectively with a large group of individuals their travel options to promote modal shift. The platform is commonly used for office moves/closures, HR recruitment to attract high calibre candidates and to encourage behaviour change away from single occupancy vehicles to sustainable travel. The tool eases parking and congestion issues, as well as promoting new travel opportunities to communities through public service websites such as Local Authority and the NHS.
