Council sets up car sharing scheme
7:20am Saturday 6th October 2012 in News
TRAVEL Thurrock estimates residents could save up to £1,000 a year if they shared a car to work.
With that in mind, Thurrock Council has set up a new car-share scheme.
The scheme is totally free to use and allows residents to find other people going their way to work, so the journey can be shared.
People can either take turns driving, offer someone a lift, in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs, or look for someone to give them a lift.
Once registered, the account can be accessed from work or home.
It also enables people to search for car share opportunity from a national database.
