Liftshare is helping businesses to save millions of pounds and tonnes of CO2

A pioneer of sustainable travel, Liftshare is a multi-award-winning platform that connects people driving the same way so that they can share their car journeys. As the biggest car sharing community in the UK, the team’s mission is to ensure that everyone has someone to travel with; solving transport poverty with fewer cars, greater access, and happier travellers.

“Liftshare has come a long way in the last 20 years; we are excited to be growing fast and working with over 700 of the UK’s greatest employers, helping them save money whilst overcoming their parking and well-being challenges, and we are thrilled to have over 1 million shared trips every month on our network,” says CEO and Founder, Ali Clabburn.

“However, 90% of commuters still drive to work alone every day at the same time as millions of families struggle with transport poverty and our cities are over their legal limits on air quality. Our hope is that in 20 years time that we will have fixed the problem.”

Liftshare helps save its corporate clients, such as BT, Ocado, Heathrow Airport, British Gas, Barclays and National Grid, over £20 million per year with private, bespoke Liftshare schemes. And that’s not even mentioning the environmental impact that Liftshare has had on the UK, with over 121,653 tonnes of CO2 saved in it’s 20-year history.

One of the most successful Liftshare schemes in the country (and possibly the world) is Jaguar Land Rover.

Across it’s UK sites the cost saving has been in excess of £1.5 million annually in reduction of additional parking and maintenance costs. Encouraging sharing journeys also enhances the business’ ethos of encouraging a healthy and balanced lifestyle amongst staff and enables employees to network, meet new colleagues and make new friends.

The cost-effective solution has also been a great employee benefit, with one staff member reducing the cost of their commute by £3,000 per year! Car sharing is a benefit which supports staff needs, delivers business productivity and efficiently manages site resources.
