Liftshare members saved £500K this Liftshare Week

Liftshare Week 2023 Member Savings

The theme of this year’s National Liftshare Week was: ‘Turning journey matches into sharers’. We know adding journeys to Liftshare – and asking our members to keep them up-to-date – leads to more sharing. So, we used this year’s event (which ran from 18-24th September) to encourage people to add, check and update their journeys.

Great news – We saw 30% more journeys added during Liftshare Week than at the start of September 2023, and more than four and a half times the journeys added as the same week in September last year! Meaning there are now significantly more journeys available to share.

We ran a Liftshare Week Competition offering prizes for those members who added or updated their journeys between 11th and 30th September. Across this extended Liftshare Week period, members benefitted from savings of £508,371, took almost 2 million miles off the road (1,741,591 to be exact) and reduced CO2 emissions by a whopping 384.02 tonnes.

Congratulations to our five prize draw winners, who each received a £100 Love2shop voucher:

  • Samantha, Eloise and Simon who are public members
  • Teju in the Prologis community
  • Ella in the Royal Devon NHS community

Impressively, there were also 80% more people sharing this September compared to last. We’ve had a bumper summer for new members joining Liftshare – 15,500 more people signing up than expected, with many people engaging with the Esso Thoughtful Driving campaign and receiving bonus Nectar points for being a Liftshare member. This has certainly contributed to getting more people lift-sharing this year.

Sign-up to Liftshare to find matches for your journey, or login to update your journey and get sharing.
