Car-share

In an ideal world you'd be leaving the car behind, but if you do hop in it, do try and optimise the journey by sharing the trip with others. 

  • Arrange to pick up a freind or colleague enroute 

  • Plan your usage, make sure you get as much as possible  done in one journey rather than multiple trips

  • Car share "Careaoke". Details to follow.
