Car-sharing is becoming a mainstream and cost-effective way of getting around.

Petrol could cost as little as 32p per litre by sharing your car with three other people.

Sharing journeys

The University operates a private, internet-based Tripshare scheme.

By registering with the University’s Tripshare account, you can search from around 800 University members to find people to potentially share your journey and travel costs.

You don’t need to own a car to register.

By taking part you can search for a lift or offer a lift or find people to share journeys by taxi, bike or foot.

Tripshare can be used for local trips, as well as journeys throughout Scotland and the UK.
