We are taking part in National Liftshare Day on 9th June and encourage staff to make use of empty car seats by sharing with colleagues.
With fuel prices soaring sharing your journey can significantly reduce your costs. Typically a motorist who shares their daily journey can save on average £1000 a year in fuel costs.
The TripshareEdinburgh scheme matches individuals with others wanting to travel in the same direction so they can share the journey and the costs.
The University operates a private scheme within TripshareEdinburgh so that staff and students can search for potential matches within the University community.
Tripshare aims to reduce the number of car trips to the University's sites.
It is part of a package of initiatives that the University is implementing to encourage staff and students to travel more sustainably.
