Staff are encouraged to arrange their own car shares as traffic and parking congestion are a regular issue at the University. Liftshare. is a website offering car sharing opportunities.
Whether you drive yourself and would like to share the cost of your commute with your fellow staff, or you don’t drive and would like a lift to work, you can arrange to car share either by asking around the staff in your office, or by enquiring on car sharing website such as Liftshare.
Work out what you’d normally spend on petrol (and tolls if applicable) getting to study, and divide that by the number of people in the car. Remember to include your own share of the costs.
