What is car sharing? Basically, it’s giving someone a lift. Simple as that!
This website is designed to assist you in contacting potential lift-sharing partners and gives you the ability to limit your search according to your own requirements. Whilst every effort has been made to minimise misuse of the site, you are requested to read both the' terms and conditions' and 'safety advice' sections as given in Frequently Asked Questions before progressing further.

How do I use this site?
You choose. Any member of the public can access it to record their journey on. If you have specific requirements, such as, only wishing to travel with a member of the same sex you can limit your search that way. You may also wish to use it as a member of a private group or public group. This way you can restrict your search to fellow members of your group or those linked to it. Employers often wish to set up a private group. You will need to know a password or have a special e-mail address to use a private group.
