Car sharing can save you money
We know that for some journeys, it’s easier to travel by car. But even in those cases, there are still things you can do to make the journey more cost-effective and more enjoyable...
Car sharing makes sense. Drive to work with a colleague one day and then they can drive you the next day. That can reduce your fuel costs considerably over the course of a year. And you don’t have to stop there…
Car-pool with two or three other colleagues and you’ll reduce your costs even more.
Plenty of people share a car and travel together across Gloucestershire every day. But it works for any occasion – for travelling to social events or just shopping. It will save you money on travel costs, reduce the amount of time you spend driving, and give you some company for the journey.
You don't even have to be a drive to car-share. For lots more information, visit www.carsharegloucestershire.com – then enter your details and find people in your area you can car share with. It’s a completely free service. Or, if you prefer, you can give us a call on 08700 111 119.
Ecodriving is the most energy-efficient form of driving. It will reduce your fuel consumption, and make your journey safer and more comfortable. If we all started ecodriving it would really improve traffic flow too.
Ecodriving isn’t difficult and you can start using these techniques straightaway. Here’s what you need to know:
|The average commuter car sharer can save £1000 a year on the cost of driving alone.|
|Fuel prices have increased by 74%
in the last decade.
|A recent AA nationwide poll has found that 20% of UK drivers car share at least once a week.|
You might be surprised at just how much you could save if you re-think your options for travelling to work…
The My Journey calculator shows you how much you can save by walking, cycling or using public transport.
