Suffolk Car Share has been set up specifically for residents of Suffolk to assist in the process of arranging journeys to share with several lift sharing options already in the area! The website is free to join and you have both the opportunity to advertise as a driver or as a passenger. The online database then helps you find suitable car sharing options, whether this is for your regular commute or a one-off trip to an event or concert. By sharing the same or similar journeys with other people you can save money on the cost of car travel. There are over 600 trips offered across the region, and more than 17 trips offered to Cambridge and other areas from or through Red Lodge. It is estimated that the average commuter could save £1,000 per year by lift-sharing, so with many potential suitable trips offered, why not sign up and find out. You could also try the online calculator on the Liftshare website to see how much money you could actually save for your particular trip.
