Liftshare has improved my daily life substantially. I’ve been able to come to work in a more comfortable, cheaper and quicker way. I’m in a better mood for not having to wait in the rain for the bus that’s usually delayed. I’ve saved a few quid and had more spare time by arriving home faster. Overall, Liftshare is a magnificent experience, I do not see any cons in it. Here I am talking from a passenger point of view but I’m sure as a driver I would feel the same as I car shared for years in Spain and my experience as a driver was also 100% recommendable. This is something I highly recommend everyone to try, you won’t regret it. Besides, you will meet really nice people on the way!

Sandra was always punctual and reliable, she sent me a text message every time she was on her way. She even asked me what would be the best meeting point for me and decided we meet there. She drove carefully, and it was a lot of fun to chat with her on the commute. Her help was invaluable to me as the public transport on this route is very bad and I was learning to drive at the time. All in all, I couldn't ask for a better Liftshare.

Using Liftshare has been a life-saving experience for me. I cannot drive at the moment so I would have to change my job if it wasn't for a Liftshare, as commuting by train wouldn't be sustainable. I made a couple of good friends through Liftshare so far and it's also better for the environment, win-win for everyone!

My friend, Teresa, and I Liftshared with Tom to Download festival. Very good, smooth driver. Delightful person to talk to, polite and patient. Tom was very kind to pick us up and drop us off home. He added to our Download festival experience. We definitely saved money as bus tickets were so expensive at the time we decided to book. Also it was much more comfortable. There is nothing to complain about!

Sarah lives just a few streets away from me and had recently moved to work at the same location I do. Sharing our journey not only saves us money on parking and petrol, but we also both get a priority parking permit and a guaranteed lift home if the return journey fails for any reason. On top of that we have removed one rush hour car from the congested streets of our city and saved a whole lot of CO2! We have had to make some minor adjustments to our routine to make the share work, we are well matched, having similar values and both being punctual people. Sarah prefers to drive, so I have more leisure and less stress on my commute and I have made a new friend too. What's not to love?

By using Liftshare I have made new friends and saved money along the way! With the long commute to work every morning it has been great to share it with such lovely people and not be alone. I would recommend Liftshare to anyone.

My colleague and I live so close to each other but car sharing simply hadn't occurred to us until we launched the Prologis Green Travel at the Bridge! We took a flexible approach to car sharing as we both had to adapt our start times a little to accommodate the other and on some days work or home commitments meant that it wasn't possible, but we never took offence! Sharing the 50 mile round trip made such a positive difference to both of us and not just financially - the Dartford Crossing is renowned for bad traffic but when you've got great company the time seems to pass quicker.

“This website has been so helpful arranging lifts with reliable people who also want to save time, money and emissions! As someone who doesn't drive this has been a life saver that has enabled me to get a job I would have otherwise had to turn down due to the commute.”

“Liftshare has been vital in the recruitment and retention of our staff at Ocado. Liftshare is part of the culture at Ocado and is seen as one of the main travel options to and from work. Without the scheme, many new employees would have limited options of travel to work. We continually promote the scheme and offer rewards for our regular Liftshare Teams. We have now expanded the scheme to another two Customer Fulfilment Centres across the UK, whose schemes are taking off well!”

“Working in the field of Education for Sustainable Development at the University of Warwick, I’m very aware of the significant life style changes that must be taken by those in the West, if we are to avoid a significant ecological shock to the global economy. Sadly, even if we accept the truth of Climate Change, we remain complicit in denial as we continue to live as if we didn’t. Insufficient as it is alone, Liftsharing is one small opportunity– along with green energy, buying less stuff and particularly meat – to take more individual responsibility. Structuring my day with Liftshare and getting to meet lovely friendly people gives me something back that’s way more valuable than any flexibility that I lose”

“Liftshare is really handy and convenient because you can save money and time, you can meet new people who make your journey shorter, really enjoyable and you also can improve your language skills by travelling with different nationalities.”

“My experience using Liftshare has been great, as I’ve made a couple of friends who’ll be remaining on my Christmas card list. Joining the scheme has also saved me time and money getting to and from work every day, which I’m very grateful for, as it certainly makes life easier.”
