The cost of the commute is certainly something we could all do without, especially at this time of year.
But sometimes public transport is not an option and walking or cycling to work isn’t always practical. But there is still a way to save some money on the cost of getting to and from work, whilst also doing your bit for sustainability.
So, why not try car sharing your journeys to and from Thorpe Park Leeds?
What is car sharing?
Also known as lift sharing or car-pooling, car sharing is essentially sharing your car journey with at least one other person. By matching our journeys with other people there is the potential to significantly reduce emissions from travel whilst also saving money. Car sharing can be informal between friends, family and colleagues or you could find others to share with through online platforms such as Liftshare.
