The New Year encourages people to consider changing small behaviours in the form of resolutions whether it be cutting your travel costs in half. Liftshare are asking new and existing members to make a small change and see a big difference.
Liftshare are encouraging people to find a journey match for their commute through Liftshare and form a Liftshare team. Between those dates mentioned above you will be entered into a prize draw to win a year’s cinema pass for Cineworld or Odeon. Members already in a team will be automatically entered as a thank you. For more information on prize draw terms and conditions, see here.
Car sharing or Liftshare Week takes place every October across the UK! Liftshare Week is all about celebrating the social, environmental and financial benefits of car sharing. Liftsharing is completely flexible, and an average regular sharer saves over £1000 a year. Liftshare Week 2018 encourages you to grab a sidekick and become a Super Commuter! Becoming a Super Commuter is as easy. For more information, see here.
European Mobility Week 2018 is focusing on ‘multimodality’ - the mixing of transport modes within the same journey or for different trips. Many of us instinctively opt for the same method of transport when moving around without necessarily examining the needs of the specific journey. The car may be the best way to take your family to the seaside, for example, but is it the best way to get them to the city centre where space and access is often limited?
This year, why not test out different transport modes: cycle to the gym to get a head start on burning calories, bring your bike on the train to beat the rush hour traffic, or take the bus and then stroll to the shops to avoid parking fees!
By introducing some sustainable transport modes into our journeys, not only can we have a positive impact on the environment, we may just find that we’re fitter and happier, with some extra spending money too! For more information, see here.
Cycle to Work Day is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event. Every year since 2012 we’ve seen thousands of enthusiastic riders hit the streets to celebrate everyday cycling. All you need to take part is a bike – new or old – and the desire to ride. For more information, see here.
Catch the Bus Week is all about encouraging employees to leave their cars at home and discover for themselves how convenient, comfortable and enjoyable travelling by bus can be.
Catching the bus is better for your pocket - our research shows commuters can save an average of £1200 per year by taking the bus and leaving the car at home
