Take The Right Route aims to reduce traffic in the Falkirk Council area. With the cost of driving rising each year, you can reduce the amount you spend by car sharing. Not only does car sharing cut the cost of driving, it helps to cut congestion and reduce pollution.

Tripshare Falkirk is a car sharing scheme that matches people who make similar journeys whether they are commuting, on the school run, taking a leisure trip or a one-off journey.

It can be used for local journeys, as well as journeys across Scotland and the rest of the UK. It can also be used for taxi, cycling and walking journeys.
