Driving


For some journeys, travelling by car is the only option.

You can still reduce your fuel consumption, costs and emissions if you consider car sharing, greener driving techniques or car clubs.

Car Share

Plus Icon How can i find someone to car share with?

Car-sharing (also called liftsharing, ridesharing and carpooling) is when two or more people share a car and travel together.

It allows individuals to benefit from the convenience of the car, whilst reducing travel costs, congestion and pollution.

To find a car sharing partner, register here as a Leeds Beckett Student with carshare.com You don’t need to have a car to register, you can also request lifts.

You can register any type of journey, whether it is a regular trip to the University or the occasional trip home.

Register today, there might be someone going your way!
