Car sharing has a number of benefits:

  • Reducing congestion and pollution
  • Saving money
  • Reducing the stress of driving

Tripshare Falkirk is a free, easy to use website which makes it easy to find people to car share with.

All you have to do is register your details then add your journey to find drivers and passengers to share with. When you have found a suitable match from the results, you can contact other members using the internal messaging system.

You don't even need a car. Many people are happy to offer lifts in exchange for sharing the fuel costs. You can register as a 'passenger only’ if you don’t have a car.

Cut congestion

Car sharing directly reduces the number of single occupancy vehicles on the road every day. This mean there are fewer cars on the road, with less queues of traffic meaning quicker journeys. Fewer cars also mean more parking spaces, cutting down the time it takes to find a space.

By sharing a car journey, you are also reducing the environmental impacts of driving. Two people sharing a car cuts the CO2 emissions in half - and the more you share, the more you save!

Save money

Save money by sharing your travel costs. The financial savings made by halving (or more) the cost of a commute is one of the biggest incentives to car share. In 2016, 50% of members who answered said saving money was very important when deciding to car share.
