One of the winners of innovation funding in our 2011 GeoVation Challenge How can we improve transport in Britain? were liftshare with their idea myPTP . This is an innovative web-based tool, designed to provide personalised travel plans to individuals at a fraction of the current time and cost.

Next week (1-5 October) is liftshare Week. Over half a million people have already joined the liftshare network, to share lifts and typically save about £1,000 a year and last year, liftshare Week won a European award, and over 6,200 new members signed up in just five days! This year they’ve done even more to make the campaign more successful than ever…

Why should you give car-sharing a try in liftshare Week
  • The typical commuter who car-shares every day saves about £1,000 a year
  • It also helps you do your bit for the environment
  • It makes boring solo journeys sociable and fun
  • It’s flexible
  • It reduces stress if you don’t have to drive every day
  • You don’t even need a car to sign up to be a car-sharer. Many members are willing to do the driving in return for a contribution to their fuel costs and some friendly company!
