It takes just two people and one car to car share!
People who want to go online to find a local traveller who may be able to share some journeys can go to the lincshare website to flag up their frequent journeys. This service will put you in touch with potential car-sharers by email first so you can decide whether to take the plunge.
An alternative is simply to put the word out locally - using a village notice board or asking friends or neighbours if they know anyone who often, or predictably wants to make the same journeys you do.
If you take a taxi to do your shopping then sharing the trip with a neighbour cuts your fare as well as your carbon footprint.
Carplus is national charity involved in everything from car clubs to car sharing. Although there are currently no car clubs in North Kesteven, the idea of individual access to jointly-owned vehicles is one that any community could choose to develop and which we believe will gain in appeal as running costs and fuel become increasingly expensive.
