Lift Share Week

Just received the following from "Petrol Prices "
Quote

It's liftshare week this week, 3-7 October. Did you know that sharing your daily car journey with someone else going your way could save you around £800 per year?
We have partnered with LiftShare.  < https://www.liftshare.com/content/default.asp?sid=1315&skin=502&lang=EN&country=GB >
It's the free website with nearly half a million members who want to share their journeys from A to B.
You can do a quick search now and find trips to share in your area.

Not applicable to me, as I am retired. and have no "regular" journeys.... but may be of use to those still working.....

Re: Lift Share Week

Car pooling has been done in the US for many years.  Helps keep a few cars off the roads with only one person in them.
In LA they have designated lanes that can only be used by vehicles with at least 2 people in them.  These lanes tend to move quicker.

Motorway car-sharing lane opens
The government says 500 miles of motorway could see such measures

The UK's first motorway car-share lane has opened in West Yorkshire.
The £5.3m stretch links the southbound M606 from Bradford to the eastbound M62 towards Leeds.

Yes indeed. 3 years in Yorkshire and 30 years in LA.
The Dept of Transport went to LA to see their experience.
