Why Liftshare? BBC 1 Morning Live Investigates

Shown on BBC One’s Morning Live programme on 13th July, presenter OJ Borg spoke to Liftshare’s Graeme Banister about our plans for the future, and interviewed Liftshare members.

OJ chatted with regular lift-sharer, Sarah, about how she finds sharing, and took a ride with first-time lift-sharer Nikki in Manchester. The conclusion of the piece was: “Maybe we all should ride together a bit more”.

Plus, she’s found people to share her 35-mile commute from Navan to Dublin through Liftshare, saving around €25 (£21) a week in petrol.
