Many people find it difficult to manage modern life without access to a car. However, that doesn't mean having to own one yourself; car sharing and lift sharing schemes give people the opportunity to make use of a car while sharing the financial and environmental cost with others. Car sharing means having community ownership of one or more vehicles. Lift sharing means using one car for a journey instead of two or three, and having company!
