Car Sharing

Travelling by car with other people is an easy way to cut your CO2 emissions and save money at the same time. Setting up informal arrangements with family, friends and colleagues, or joining up to the University’s Car Share Scheme are both good ways to start car sharing.

Why not save money and share your journey?

The University has its very own car share scheme that enables members of staff to search for colleagues doing a similar journey to work to arrange to share their journeys. The number of days on which you car share is completely up to you, it could be as little as once per week or every day. Including the environmental benefits there is also a significant financial saving to those who car share. More info can be found at lboro.ac.uk/carshare

If every car commuter used an alternative on just one day a week, car usage levels would be reduced by 20% with immediate effect – meaning there’d be 400 less cars searching for the limited spaces on campus.

Guaranteed Ride Home Scheme

The University offers a Guaranteed Ride Home Scheme for those taking part in the car share scheme. The scheme reimburses the cost of public transport or taxi fares should your car share partner be called away on an unforeseen emergency, e.g. needing to care for a sick child.
