- The system searches for possible matches and lists them for you on screen
- You can then contact potential travel companions via an automated email system
- getabout liftshare includes a cost calculator to help you calculate the annual cost of your motoring and the potential financial savings to be made from car sharing. It also answers several frequently asked questions

There is a financial benefit to individuals who car share. Research shows the average commuter can save up to £1000 a year. There are also benefits to the wider community and environment. These include reductions in congestion and carbon emissions.
