Car sharing

Car sharing is when two or more people share a car and travel together. It allows people to benefit from the convenience of the car, whilst alleviating the associated problems of congestion and pollution. However, this does not just have to be about car sharing. By being in contact with others, there are also other ‘Buddy’ systems to think about - sharing the walk to school, cycling or even the bus.

Key benefits include;

  • Reduce the amount of time spent taking the children to and from school

  • Avoid the early morning traffic

  • Reduce the cost of taking the children to school

  • Meet other parents living locally with children at the same school

  • Reduces pollution
